he isn't going to get much gaming for $200, the best he could hope for is a reasonable s754 board from a reputable manufacturer and a sempron. make sure he doesn't even contemplate a celeron or he'll have no hope of gaming

I thought he could get this instead of a sempron...

well i used an Asus K8V-MX in my grandfathers s754 build and i quite like it. its a fairly basic board but it gets the job done. of course there won't be any overclocking options on the board. i don't have the time to look around but at the upper end of s754 boards you could get an NF3 LanParty motherboard

that motherboard looks pretty decent. fairly similar to the K8V except minus the onboard video
