Generall purpose sub $400 build

Building a new system for my father-in-law. Would like to offer him a couple of options - one close to his $300 wish and one closer to my $400 idea.

Approximate Purchase Date: this week

Budget Range: $300-$400 before rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: internet, movies, photo management, downloading every pop-up program on the internet and filling the desktop with shortcuts

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS (installing Win 7)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: probably AMD (I'm thinking Phenom II X4, but an Athlon might be sufficient)

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: unknown

Additional Comments: used this case for two budget builds and will probably use it for this one. As always, thanks for the input.
