Oh lord, only $200.... Let's see what I can do...

CPU: AMD A6-3500 Llano 2.1GHz ($69)
Comes w/ integrated GPU

Mobo: BIOSTAR A55MLV ($54)

Case: XION XON-180 ($34)

HDD: Western Digital Blue 500GB ($69)

PSU: COOLER MASTER Elite 460 (24.99 w/ rebate)

RAM: G.SKILL 4GB ($19)

Total: $269
This is the BARE minimum, not including OS, or anything else. And this build is butt. You'd be 100% better off to save some money spend it on much better parts.
