As titan has already mentioned AGP is an outdated technology that just won't die, but its come to the end and the future doesn't look bright. If you choose a motherboard with AGP graphics, then you'll be stuck with a lower end motherboard with no future. Since your build is quite a bit old I'd say you don't game and just use your computer for Internet and word documents, I'm only assuming, is this true? If this is the case, most motherboard come with additional feature, whether you want them or not. Since your still on socket A, the onboard (another term for built in) audio card will probably be better then the ones you currently hold. Also, even on a barebones computer 250w is cutting it close, I'm recommend buying a PSU. I'd never suggest less then 350w even if you never upgrade, no less then 550w is recommended though. Also you no longer need ethernet cards, they are now built into motherboards as well. You'll probably need to buy a grphics card, but they are only cost 50$.
While I don't agree with the penium D's that much, that build will alow you to use your graphics card, but you will still need to buy memory thus reducing costs. But if you do choose this route, this motherboard will not give you a future to upgrade on as the processor thats already in there is as good as it can get. Also there are many heat related problems with that processor. Just out of curiousity though, what do you use your computer for?
Also there are supposed to be price cuts on AMD's side tomorrow(the 9th), wait 1 week afterwards for the market to settle down and you'll find better processors at lower prices. You'll probably only save 10-20$ on the budget end that your looking at, but hey it pays for shipping.
Edit: I'm going to do a little looking around tomorrow if I have a chance and find a deal. The prices are about to drop and I think I'll find a great AMD buy that will slaughter the Pentium D's performance at the same price.
