Default Low end budget help

k... since everyone said i should start over on picking out parts for my friends build...


can someone pick out a decent build that can be upgraded eventually as he gets money for about $400? He doesnt need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and hes going to use his old sata HD...

basically low end budget...
