if you refering to This one then yeah its a little bit better cuz it has 4 mb of L3 cache and more overclocking capabilities , however you gonna need to toss some cash for cooler and since ur friend wont be overclocking (actualy its not even adviced on a board that costs less then 130-140$ cuz of power phase) the x4 athlon with 3 Ghz and box cooler would be the better choice in my opinion .

anyway if u decide to go phenom route then this cooler is the minimal you should get .
*edit* found a nice CPU for ya Here 6 mb L3 cache and can be unlocked , add in that 15 bucks cooler from above and ur build looks solid .
