Default Lowest Performance Computer Ever. Right Now.

I need to build the CHEAPEST system ever. Can I get some help??

I just need a computer, the cheapest build. No monitors, no speakers, no keyboard, no mouse. Just the Case, CPU, Ram, Mobo. I've been looking at some really good computers lately and I don't know how to put together the cheapest system.

Cheapest CPU on Newegg:
Newegg.com - AMD Sempron 64 3000+ Palermo 1.8GHz 128KB L2 Cache Socket 754 62W Processor - OEM

I don't even know what is compatible with this cpu... as in mobo... and which mobo would be the cheapest... and which ram.... etc. HELP!!

Use my advice at your own risk.

My rig:
CoolerMaster Centurion 5
SamSung 20" LCD
Intel E6750 @ 2.66Ghz
Gigabyte p35-ds3r
Patriot Extreme 2gb 4-4-4-12
Sapphire X1950XT 256mb
Samsung 500gb @ 7200
PSU Xclio GreatPower 550W
Samsung DVD Burner
Logitec X-230 2.1
