    I'd make him buy a P4 1.8A minimum unless you can still find a 1.6A. The 1.5 is based on the Williamette core which is not as good as the newer Northwood core. The rest of the parts are gonna depend on what he wants to spend. He could get a P4 1.8A and a DDR motherboard for under $250 at newegg.

    The ABIT SA7 is a cheap buy.

    1.6aor 1.8a CPU's i would recommend also, make sure its a Northwood (512 cache)
    googlegear and newegg got 1.8's at a fair price
