At the moment, there's not very much for sale here. Other than a CPU and that would probably eat up more than half of your budget, and would make it REALLY difficult to get a motherboard.
You might be able to score a good deal on HardForums, as they have a pretty active classifieds section, although you won't be able to post in there. Just browse and then message the member, which is what I do.
