Intel Core 2 Duo 6600's are good.
Do you have a budget that you'd wish to follow for the upgrades?
Yeah.. if you want more RAM, get some DDR II RAM
that would mean that instead of a new cpu and 1gb of ram he would be looking at a new cpu, 2gb of ram and a mobo. Which would end up being a little more expensive, and he said he wants to keep his old mobo.
Amd's dual cores are fine too, just not as good as intel ones, but he will be saving a lot of money because he can use his old ram and mobo.
