what is your over all budget?

the above reccomendations are good ones cause they offer good performance for value and they can be combined with an entry level amd 6xxx gpu to "crossfire" for combined performance

I would say 300 max. Though cheaper is preferred. She mainly will just be playing sims, dirt 3, gta IV (and 5 if it comes to PC). She will also be getting Simcity 5. The games do not need to be maxed, maybe just medium or high.

if you are plannning on buying a gpu that high, dont get an amd APU.

go for an athlon quadcore maybe.

If yopu're going the APU (AMD A4 or any A series) You should go fo 8 gig of 1866Mhz ram. Reason being the on chip video uses system ram and the A series chips like faster ram.

Dont worry ill help

are you able to fit this into your budget with that cpu?

i found that one cause it has heatsinked VRMs. you could overclock it a bit to help with her games (amd seems to benifit greatly from overclocks in gaming)

just a thought.

that would allow you (if my math is correct) about 150$ to find a case, psu, ram and maybe a hyper 212 cooler
