ok here is what you need/want
 
Core 2 Duo, you dont really need the extreme edition or u can wait for quad cre which you can buy now
 
at least 1GB of ddr2, but 2GB DDR2 just makes the world go round
 
At least a 7600 nvidea maybe sli (two of the same video cards) sli would keep you going for a while
 
thats it! and a good mobo and a big HD



When I decide I want to take a shot at graphics, (which I know I want to and love to do, just don't have the money) I'm going to build one helluva PC. The best graphics card (Meaning the previous 3month old graphics card that got replaced a month later), one big ass HD (I'll just buy a big ass 1TB external HD.), PhotoShop CS2 (damn I want that).
 
I think I want to be a graphic designer, animator, or a writer... definitely going to take an English Lit class in college. Anyway... way, build a great graphics PC so I can do a lot of photo editing...

That's if he has the money. If he needs something cheap then a socket 939 cpu is the way to go.

i play guild wars on a 6 year old pc, with the settings all on max. you just have to know how to optimize your pc, and you can get away with old tech.

My education on computer was on forums, just ask questions on certain knowledgeful forums and you wouldn't be wasting money at all.
