Dopemoney, this is the only part I disagree with you on. I get that you want to build to a budget and have no qualms with that. My issue is twofold one the OEM power supply may not run the setup due to changes in the newer arcetecture. Your best bet would be to take a picture of the side of the Psu so we can see exactly what it is. Second as previously mentioned, if the PSU fails it could take out the rest of the system with it or worse. We have seen them also catch on fire and do damage to ones home as well.i want to try to run my original 300w psu because i simply do not want to spend more than i have to (and no i do not want to burn up the new board or any other components, but i will risk it for my learning experience).
Another option for you to think about is going with an AMD Apu which has on board graphics. Therefore you only need to get an APU and Motherboard. Here is an example.
