He should get an opteron and a 7800gt. Work the rest out with however much cash he has left.

I believe it's an OPTERON.

And if he's not planning on OCin' he should listen to the people that say, "X2 4400+"

ya your right ..but still even if he is not going to overclock he should get the 175...i had the same issue deciding if i should get the 4400 or the opteron, and this is what i came up with
i)opteron have a better silcion
2)it the same core
3)if he is going to over clock it would reach higher speeds
4)runs cooler
5)its only $20 more than the 4400
