so the options:

P4 and a nice mobo that will support C2Ds but not newer chips OR
Sempron dual core with a cheap mobo that will support pretty much every CPU amd has to offer, and spend more on the video card.

just thought mabey that the P4 might have a little more power for the older games he plays
Well is this not tight enough?

Ok so there isnt any point in building such a cheapo computer. If he wants to game he should prolly dish out enough cash so he can.

well, the video card would be 2600pro. which is still good (for a while). a dual core sempron prolly wont bottleneck it.

the only reason why i considered the P4 is because it allow for an upgrade path, however, the dual core celeron would require a more expensive motherboard because of the stupid chipset thing

anyway, ill see if i can squeeze in one of those Pentium Dual core 2XXX things, but i dont think it will happen

a $66 4600+ is the MINIMUM you should get.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103258
or else you will seriously bottleneck a new GPU. its only $11 more than the Pentium 4, and the mobo will be atleast $11 less (since amd mobos are cheaper) so just get it.

this $40 mobo will be fine
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813153073

and this $40 ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820161229

you are only spending $146 on ram, mobo and cpu

for the GPU, go with a 2600XT over the PRO, its only $70
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102700

but if you MUST get the 2600PRO, get this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814261003
its 128bit and GDDR3 (gddr2 sucks, even if it has more Vram, it cant use it)
