Thermaltake Mambo $45 free shiping from ZZF
Gigabyte DS3 ~ $150
E6400 ~ $240 (ithink)
1 Gig of DDR2 667 ~ $100 (for a cheap brand i doubt she will need something expensive)
Antec Trupower 550watt PSU ~ $90
Biostar 7300LE ~ $50

i think that would do her well

I don't think you need to spend that much on a PSU. Get this:
HIPRO

Get this PSU only if you get that video card or something similar.

Get 2GBs of ram.
Mushkin $150

dont forget windows stores temp on drive c, you dont want to run out of space on c, but 40Gb sounds ok, defenitely dual core for multitasking, and the case with power supplies is "you get what you paid for" I bought an X-connect like a year ago died in 5 mins more like 2, I also bout some 550W PSU for like 25 bucks, guess what? Fried my mobo, thats right you should problaly get a name brand to be on the safe side
