Lightbulb New Build

I'm going to be building a computer for my father, not a computer literate person at all.... but have decided to go with an AMD based system..

My budget is approximately $600 without any peripherals and/or monitor.

Keep in mind this will be used primarily for playing games such as Tiger Woods golf, and web surfing. I would like it to be HIGHLY upgradable so as that I can upgrade it for him yearly as the techknowledgy increases and his computer saviness continues to grow. Any ideas?

Help would be appreciated.

Also, I haven't built a computer in several years. I have however, upgraded my machine several times and know my way around pretty well.
