AMD simply has that locked in & will only improve as there cpu's core matures/evolves.

He should be looking at 1 of those AMD A10 trininty based cpu's + board + 1866+ DDR3 (8 gig minimum) & maybe even a low end 120 gig ssd drive unless he doesnt intend to put abunch of hard drive hoggin games on it then he might want a higher preforming 60-90 gig drive.
Trinity desktop is quite a ways away, so it's not really reasonable to recommend Trinity to somebody who wants to build a PC NOW. I stand by my Llano APU recommendation. It's the best bang for the buck at this point. He'll have enough money left over to buy a 120GB SSD in order to improve performance in day-to-day productivity.
