Default Need New Mid- Level PC, any suggestions?

Hello all, looking for to build a second PC just for net serfing, music playing, and some video encoding. Here's what I do have, and would like to keep and use this stuff if possible.

550 Rosewill PSU
Rosewill ATX Case
SB Audigy
250GB MAxtor Sata Drive
256MB AGP Nvidia 5700LE (It seems ok for this build if I can use it)

So that's what I have, guess I would need some ram, a mobo, and a CPU. Open to any suggestions, I know nothing about the new Core DUO CPU's, and if I needed to get a cheap PCIE vid card feel free to recommend one of those too!

Really appreciate any help. Usually shop through NewEgg so if you have any links that would be great too

what's your budget for the rest of the parts...

Epox Ep-9NDA31 S939 - 59.00
Opteron 144 Socket 939 - 79.00
pqi DDR400 PC3200 (2x512MB) - 98.00
Coolermaster Centurion 5 - 55.00
Linksys KVM switch - 32.00

The KVM is for dual system, but only one KB/M and monitor... comes in handy... I have one and it works very well...

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W
