I looked at tiger and i found this:

eMachine EL1331-05 Refurbished Desktop PC - AMD Athlon 2850e 1.8GHz, 3GB DDR2, 320GB HDD, DVDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Its $50 more, but I think it well worth it. I will give him these 2 choice with me recommending eMachine


- Asus P6T Deluxe v2 - Intel i7 920 @4Ghz 1.35v- Prolimatech HS - Cosmos S Case -
- ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ800 PSU
- ATI 5870 - G.SKILL 6GB DDR3 1600 - Razer Barracuda™ AC-1
- 120GB Crucial C300 SSD & 3X WD640AAKS HDD
- Dell 24" 2408WFP & 2407WFP-HC Monitor

That looks okay for what they will be doing. It should be faster than the atom.

I do not know where, but there are some places where you can get off lease P4 dells for like $100.
