You should build it yourself. I know you're not very comfortable, but there are some good sites that take you step by step on how to build your own pc.

That's a very thorough how to article and very informative. You'll definitely learn a lot by doing it yourself and also save some decent money.

I would suggest something along the lines of:

Athlon 64 3000+ or 3200+ Venice
Nvidia 6600 GT
2x512MB PC3200 non-generic RAM
Abit AV8
120/160GB Seagate hard drive
It's worth it to go PCI-E though, but if she's decide's to buy and assemble PCI-E will be more expensive now, it is not that bad on monarch.

Abit AV8
104$

Leadtek 6600GT
151$

OR

eVGA 6600GT
174$

DFI Lanparty Ultra-D
132$
