No. And as a bare minimum, double your budget.

I haven't updated my AMD budget build recommendations in a while:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma - $60

ASRock A780GMH/128M AM2+/AM3 AMD 780G motherboard - $72

4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2-1066 - $30

CORSAIR 400W 80 PLUS Certified PSU - $40 (try using code Maypsu10 for another $10 off)

You have 3 choices for the graphics:

1. use the onboard
2. pair up the onboard with a Radeon HD4350 & run Hybrid Crossfire
3. disable the onboard & run a discrete card such as the Radeon HD4670

MSI Radeon HD4350 512MB 64-bit GDDR2 - $35

MSI Radeon HD4670 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 - $53

Depending on the video choice, the totals would be roughly:

1. $202
2. $237
3. $255
