practically nothing, all there is just support for DDR 2 memory, and the fx-62 whichis way out of your budget, so there's really no reason to go am2

AM2 is more future proof, pretty much all though along with DDR2.

Do you plan on overclocking, cause if you're not I did a build for my girlfriend a few weeks ago that cost around $800 and was a fairly decent system.

I'd go with AM2 aswell. Once the prices drop and he gets a bit more money he can have a much better system.
