Default Budget PC

I just got $300 for my birthday and I want to finish building my PC. Iam going to be doing extremely low res like 1280x768 and I've already got the ram and psu... I just need the cheapest and best cpu,video card, hdd,mobo for the money... I don't know if it's possible building this cheap that's why i came here.
