We are reusing the following components from his previous PC (Assuming they work):

Monitor
HDD
Optical Drive
Keyboard
Mouse
He is going to find software... by his own means.

If hes just doing the normal noob stuff AIM/WEB/Email/solitare

Then why not just get him a higher quality P4 setup maybe even 478, like a 3.0ghz P4 and a 9 series gpu or maybe a 6 series from nvida. You might even be able to buy a whole computer for 150$ or so depending, and he could save the rest to buy stuff he really wants or needs. I'm used to doing budget builds I never have money to build a good computer, and the first thing when building a budget build for someone else is to ask do they really need a dual core 7200 or a 9600gt?? My parents do the basic noob stuff on their computer and its a P4 3.0ghz and to them its still fast as lightning cause it dosent take a E8400 to open a Email attachment.

Its not for you so it dosent need to be a ultra comp like your used to building it just needs to meet his needs.

he won't need dx 10, drop down the gpu to 79 series card or a 19 series. You'll get similar performance, and you cxan pick those cards up for a lot less. at least - $50
