Default Integrated graphics

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-73VM-S2 LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 7050/nForce 610i Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Well im looking at that motherboard for a simple e2140 build and i was wondering if anyone knew if the 610i was a decent chipset and if the integrated graphics were reliable just for internet searching.

Yeah that'll do fine. Most "typical" desktop computers from HP, Acer, etc. have the same integrated chipset. Works well for all of the basic stuff and some light gaming.

Well then you can use this to go cheap to the max:
Newegg.com - MSI P6NGM-L LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce7050 / nForce610i Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
As for CPU even a celeron will be good enough in your case

You can always go:
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail
or
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 LE-1600 2.2GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 45W Single-Core Processor - Retail
with
Newegg.com - ECS AMD690GM-M2 AM2 AMD 690G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

for something overall more cheaper.
