The Video card you mentioned (not be to be a pest or anything or second guess you ) but for what I think he wants like to play BAttle field 2 it might not be that great.

The reviews dont look good at all. Mentions that its not that great for 3d games.

Just to be safe he might want to invest a little more money in a little better video card

He would be better off spending a little more and getting

PixelPipelines 8
Core clock 350MHz
Memory Clock 1000MHz

overclock the Core clock a little, and there ya go.

EDIT: 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.
