He would be better off spending a little more and getting http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150152
Core clock 350MHz
Memory Clock 1000MHz
overclock the Core clock a little, and there ya go.
Also, forgot to mention, the 3000+ is DEF the way to go on a budget build. I would assume that the AM2 cores are near identical to the 939 cores, in which the 3000+'s can be OC'd to 3500+ (2.2Ghz) or even 3800+ (2.4Ghz) with little trouble.
With MINIMAL time invested, and almost NO thermal increase, my 3500+ Venice is running at 2.36Ghz.
