I built a budget system for my sister, and put a Semperon 2400 in it. It has more than enough pep for the Office apps and internet, and can handle light gaming as well. Personaly, I have an XP 2800, but I think that might be too much for this case.

dgkjasd098 he said he didn't want to overclock it, it's just for his father. And yes get him an XP just for the base fact it's nearly twice the speed of the semprons. So, bah. Just go Barton core for me

Yeah, definitely go XP. I recently built a budget rig for my mom and got her an XP1900, Asrock mobo (everything integrated), 512mb value DDR266, 52x burner, 40 gig harddrive.

It works perfect for them, and it folds about 1 big WU everyday

You can get a geforce fx5200 for like 50$, you could go with a MSI K7n2 Delta-LSR and a Xp2500+ the mobo and processor will run you about 140$ and change from newegg.com
