Default Best Build under 675

I just need the case, Psu, mobo, cpu, graphics, hd (160), memory(1gb).
For under 675 (tight budget). I might be able to get better components if worth it.

Motherboard - DFI Lanparty UT nF3 250 Socket 754 - $99.

Processor - AMD Sempron 64 3000+ (1.8GHz, 128KB L2 cache) - $88.

Memory - 2 x 512MB OCZ EL Platinum Rev. 2 DDR400 - $155.

Hard Drive - 160Gb Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM HDD - $92.

Video Card - eVGA GeForce 6600GT AGP - $159.

Case - JPAC Case - $37.

Power Supply - FSP Group (Forton Source) 400W PSU - $36.

$666 total. Its in your budget, but if you live in some select states like California, New Jersey, and others, then you pay $50 and the shipping for the whole this is $38. Which brings the total to $753.

Chances are you live in a state where you don't have to pay tax, so be ready to pay atleast $700.

He doesn't need the fast ram Flanker. The OCZ Premier Value is capable of hitting high speeds at higher latencies, but that is ok. I think the one I recommended is better. You're giving stuff that will eventually lead him into a dead end. Secondly, not everyone is comfortable with ocing so that is another reason why he should just take 939 over 754.

Why would you ever reccomend a Sempron 3000+? It has half the ram of a 3100+ and is a crappier overclocker as a whole. Assuming this person has no intention/knowledge of overclocking, he'd be screwed. Stick with a s939 Venice 3000+
