I am building a PC for a friend and would love to give them room for upgrades.

I was thinking of a Gigabyte EP43-DS3L $80, Intel Dual Core E5200 $78.50 and Kingston 2GB PC6400 $27

This would leave them with the option to go with a Core2Duo/Quad-Core and 4GB if they decide to go Vista later. I have no idea if a E5200 is decent even if it wont be overclocked or if I should try and get them to spring for a Core 2 Duo $119 cheapest. For now I will moving over their current Case/PSU/CDRW/HDD/Vid.

Thanks

Just saw a ASUS M3A78 $80, Phenom 9600 $104, Kingston 2GB PC6400 $27?
