Newegg.com - Intel BOXDG31PR LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Newegg.com - Intel BOXDG41RQ LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

main difference is the chipsets used. G31 for the former and g41 for the latter.
G41 uses the X4500 onboard video versus the G31 using the 3100
So, better onboard graphics for the G41.

G41 can use up to 8gb or ram versus 4gb for the g31.
Needless to say the g41 is worth the extra $10.

The real question is what are you getting this for? And what is your board budget?

Alright, with this budget, you need to go AMD.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model VDQVE1A16K - Desktop Memory
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

Total comes to $335.26 after shipping, then you get 20 bucks back in MIRs.

With this build, you would be using onboard video, but it works just fine for light gaming and regular everyday stuff. The 9500GT would have been a waste of money.

You're getting a triple core instead of a dual at a higher frequency, with a great motherboard that will allow for future upgrades.

Later on, you could add a dedicated card if you want to game more. But for now, this is your best bet. It's pretty hard to beat AMD on a budget.

This build comes to $348. While it includes a slower cpu than the x3 720 the HD 4650 is several times faster than the HD 3300 so it will be better suited to gaming. I wasn't sure if you needed a complete build so I went ahead and included all the parts for one just in case.
