    I just ordered a SATA-300 drive and now I need to get a
    motherboard/cpu that will use it.

    Cost is important so the sky is NOT the limit. But I want at least
    an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ processor.

    I am not a gamer so a built in graphics would be nice, but am willing
    to pay $120 bucks for a graphics card.

    Which motherboard do I need?

    I went with an ASROCK 939SLI32-eSataII

    Man is it fast, and only $80 for the motherboard.

    If you are going to use onboard video DEFINTLY get a NVIDIA GeForce 6150
    board like this one. The best video right now.You will also be able to
    upgrade to an athlon dual core cpu later. .
