Well. I came up with a possibility that might work well for you:

ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 $70
AMD Athlon 64 (939) 3700+ $220

A nice processor plus a average midranged motherboard, with the added bonus that it has both AGP, for you videocard, and PCIe slots for futher upgrades.

Yeah, the Asrock mobo still uses a 20-pin connector. I think you could run it with that for awhile, but it might be too much for it and you'll be able to tell. If it is, it probably won't blow up your PC, but you should see some crashing and it might not power up at all. Again, if it isn't.

You may be able to get by with that PS just fine.

If you decided to use to HDD's or a PCIE grapics card, then you may require a PS @ 450 watts or higher
