Help Building a General Use AMD PC

I want to build a pc for about 400$ CAN. I want to use an AMD processor and have maybe a gig of ram, but if too expencive than 512 will do just fine. I want to run windows xp without too many lag issues. Anyone have any reccomendations on the parts to use that arent too expencive but will be alright for general use.

Id say Glock or AK would be the best to help seeing as they both live in Canada.

There are some good deals to be found at tigerdirect.ca, here is one that I just received via their newsletter, I'm not sure if you want to get refurbished but it definitely fits your budget

Well if it is for Tom it shouldn't be too hard to build a cheap one. He is not big into gaming so a refurb computer would work out great.
