Sweet, but he needs a computer before he can use one.

To build a budget computer I would recommend a motherboard that has built in video, sound, and network. This is the best value which has all of those features:

BIOSTAR "M7NCG 400" nForce2
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...138-234&depa=1

I would also suggest an XP2500+ (or any barton core CPU) processor and 512MB kingston/ crucial pc3200.
