This is my good friend Mr Dawe and he is newcomer looking for some help (welcome ^^). He asked for my help today on building him a system on a budget. I suggested AMD but its been awhile since I looked at AMD mobo's. I told him to sign up on Tom's forum as I know everyone is really helpful here and always have good advice.

I see there is alot of typo's on his build and some of the links are wrong or don't work so I thought I would clear it up a bit so its more readable ;) 

I am hoping someone can guide him in the right direction as this will be his first computer he has every built and I would like it to be a good experience for him. Any help is always most appreciated as we just need final critique based on if there is anything better we could of selected or done for him based on the components he has decided on.
