If you gave a total budget for your computer we could proberly help you more. I recomend skt 754 because am guessing you on a very tight budget. If it not as tight as I asume then you could get a skt 939 motherboard/cpu and that would be the best way to go. skt 754 a good options for those who cant aford skt 939 stuff.

Well I going to throw in PSU unless you already got a decent one. If all you need is those 7 things you can do pretty well with $650. let take a look what you can do or at least what I would do.

CPU
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice 1GHz FSB $146
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103537

Motherboard
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra $126
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130484

RAM
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) $82
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440

CHAINTECH SE6600G Geforce 6600GT 128MB $159
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814145098

PSU
XCLIO XClio 450BL ATX 450W Power Supply 230Vac $53
http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...189-003&depa=0

ATX Case $50
just choose what ever you want and try to keep price down to around 50. Case is the least important part.

Soundcard $0
That motherboard has intergrated sound that should be fine

TOTAL: $616

With the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra motherboard you would need a PCI-E video card. This is the future of video cards and agp is slowly being phased out. THis motherboard will not work with agp. Very few motherboard have both agp and pci-e. You have to choose one or the other when you buy a motherboard. You are much more future proof if you go pci-e and that why I recomended a pci-e motherbaord.

You can use ANY brand video card. it does not have to match the motherboard.

As long as the video card is PCI-E it will work in the motherboard.
