Ubuntu can run on many different specs, so it would be hard to say
without more info on what it is to be used for.

You can build a cheap powerfull PC like this:
Intel G41 motherboard
Intel E5200 CPU
2GB DDR2 800 memory
500GB Samsung SATA2 drive
Samsung SATA DVD-Rw

Wont set you back more than R3000

A graphics card is only really needed for games and 3D work.

I would suggest a 21.5" LG Full HD LCD, they go for around R1800 or a
Samsung 2333sw
