I agree. You can get a 4600+ which really preforms well at stock for $80:
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Windsor 2.4GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core Processor - Retail

and a decent mobo with really good onboard video (as far as onboard can go) for $70:
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TForce TF7025-M2 AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 7025 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail


eMachines T5062
Single-core AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (UC'd to 1.06 GHZ)
256MB 667MHz DDR2 - Nvidia GeForce 6150SE (integrated)
20GB 4800rpm IDE - Eight channel (7.1) Audio
Windows ME... and Playing Crysis at 1 fps

I don't live in the states so newegg is kinda useless to me. Like they are a good computer liqudstor if you live in the states. However we want to stick to Intel. Also from the computer store where we are planning to get it from, they sell the Intel processors cheaper then the AMD's and cost is something that we are is taken into consideration.

Xion Solaris Black/Green Mid ATX Case w/Neon Glow
