Default Inexpensive mb/cpu combo

Well, I am in search for a new mb/cpu combo that I can pickup for cheap. It is for a friend that just wants something that runs decent and she only uses it for her digital camera and the internet.

I am looking at around a 1.8 to 2.4ghz range onboarrd, auido/video/lan/ ...

Its not really a big deal if its a "COMBO". Just get a mobo and a cpu. Combos arent very good usually anyways.

Heres a processor.

Heres a good mobo.

Heres an alright affordable mobo.

Finished With TF.

Those prices are all on the high-end imo, he's looking for cheap. If your friend is only using it for a digi cam and net you should probably like... get this... she doesn't need anything faster.... really.... think about it.

Board - it's actually on the expensive side because you want onboard video/LAN/audio

How about $90 plus $2 shipping?

Biostar KM266 Pro mobo, with an AMD Sempron 2200+ w/fan. It is a microATX board, so you can pick up a case for little of nothing.
