Making one that small will probably be kinda rough, though a system that'll run what you need for under 450 is pretty simple

Have you looked into replacing the CPU? I'm guessing since it's an Epia board (from that link) that it's got a VIA C3, which isn't really enough for any MPEG viewing...but I also think you might have a standard Socket 370 that may be able to handle a Tualatin PIII, which would have a much better time with your video decoding.

Otherwise, I can highly recommend the Biostar ideq 210V, which has onboard video, sound, 100mbit LAN, and USB (and retails on Newegg for only $150) and an Athlon XP or Sempron (Socket A).
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
