I was thinking along the same lines and I have just bought 
an ION board.

The main board comes with a CPU and with GeForce 9400 graphics, 
so that will be cheaper than the sum of a normal board + CPU + 
GeForce 9400 graphics.

Here in Germany, there are only two Atom boards with 1 PCI slot
and GeForce 9400 graphics:

All you need in addition to that is some memory, the DVB-S2 card 
and a case. Cases start at 30 Euros:
