Crucial M500 120GB ($74.99)
Intel Core i3-4130 Haswell 3.4GHz ($124.99)
GIGABYTE GA-H87M-HD3 mATX ($92.00)
CORSAIR CX430M ($49.99)
SilverStone PRECISION Series PS09B ($49.99)
LG Internal Super Multi DVD Drive ($19.99)
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) ($47.99)
$459.94 + $12.83 super eggsaver shipping, $472.77 grand total
The motherboard has HDMI out, which you'll find useful. As it's mATX, there's a 16x PCIe slot + 2 PCie 1x slots (and, boo, an old PCI as well). The CPU's HD 4400 graphics will handle your desktop + streaming video + verrrry light gaming duties. An inexpensive GPU could be dropped in later to increase performance.

I'm also not sure if I would use an SSD on this type of build, as they're more of a luxury item and only 120GB to a system might feel a little constrained. Kvndoom, if you live near a Microcenter, they have some incredible CPU+Motherboard combo deals and will match Amazon/Newegg on everything else.
