If i were to build a $400 PC, these would be the parts

Gigabyte 785G w/ 4200IGP - $85 (http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...cture=Gigabyte)
2GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1333 - $75 (http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...acture=Corsair)
AMD Athlon II X3 435 - $85 (http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...anufacture=AMD)
Sparkle or Seasonic or Antec PSU - $50 (http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...20Power%20Intl.)
Compucase - $30 (http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...e&promoid=1097)
Sammy DVD - $30 (http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...acture=Samsung)
Seagate 7200.12 500GB - $50 (NCIX.com - Buy Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA2 3.5IN 8.5MS 7200RPM 16MB Hard Drive OEM *3YR MFR Warranty* - ST3500418AS In Canada.)

Total: $405 - $10 MIR = $395

That is actually a pretty solid low end build. If you want to save a few dollars, then drop down to an athlon II 245 or 250. Price match everything any you can probably cut a few more bucks too. Also I would stick with seasonic or corsair psu. 350-400w will be plenty of power.
