Default PC build for parents

Ok so I have the job of building my rents a PC, I built my self a gaming rig last summer :P
ok so i already have a 7600gt, and a 430W psu from my older gaming rig that im gonna give to them.

so i need
mobo
ram
cpu
case
cd/dvd optical
hdd

THEY DO NOT NEED ANYTHING OVER THE TOP AT ALL!
ALL THEY DO IS CHECK THEIR EMAIL, GO ON THE WEB, BANKING... NORMAL USAGE!

Buget: Under $400 for sure, $250-$350 would be great

The parts need to be from NCIX.com - Canada's Premier Computer Store - Great Technology, Service and Selection.

Thanks alot guys!

NCIX.com - Buy ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus mATX AM2+ GE6100-NF430 1PCI-E16 2PCI SATA2 RAID Video Sound LAN Motherboard - M2N-MX SE PLUS In Canada.

$67.40. Has GeForce 6100 GFX, but is mATX. All I can find with onboard are mATX, though.

If you go with onboard, get the 2 gigs to compensate for the RAM it will use. Still cheaper than a GFX card.
