I'm looking for a decent CPU and ATX motherboard with IDE support. Anybody got a favorite combo?

most any ASUS or Gigabyte board I have seen with nVidia chipset are under $50 and you can use a cheap low watt AM2 Sempron and some cheap DDR2-800. I can't comment much on Intel options I am an AMD fan and typically on the low end you end up better with AMD. I suggest nVidia chipset as Ibelieve they still have IDE on thier boards most these board will be mATX but that is rarely an issue as most ATX cases can support mATX. If it must be full ATX I am sure there are some just hadn't looked when it came to smaller systems.
