So you need a CPU and Memory?
Athlon 64 x2 4600+ and only $126

Getting a better CPU than that wouldn't hurt anything but your wallet. 4600+ at the price is pretty good.

2 Gigs of DDR2 SDRAM

1 Slot 2 Gigs, should be enough don't ya think?

If you have everything you say you have you could just get a 4200+ processor and 2GB of ram for around 300-400$
