Best candidate for an AMD APU. The build that great_big_abyss posted is great. Here is mine

AMD A8-3870K APU w/ Asus F1A75-V EVO Motherboard at Memory Express 199.99 for mobo+cpu+gpu

Corsair Builder Series CX430 V2 Power Supply at Memory Express 49.99 for corsair brand PSU

Bitfenix Merc Alpha ATX Mid Tower Gamer Case, Black at Memory Express 39.99 for a bitfenix case

GSKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB PC3-10666 Dual Channel DDR3 Kit (2 x 4GB) at Memory Express 47.99 for 1333mhz 8 gig ripjaws

Total: $337.96

This leaves you with enough money for a 60 gig SSD for a boot drive/gaming drive!

EDIT: This build also allows for a new copy of windows if you don't feel like running Ubuntu :)
