nice setup...

I would consider lowering the speed of that processor and getting a second hard drive. if he's doing semi-important things, it should would pay off to have a second hard drive. Even better, put in a program like 'backup genie' to auto back up his doc folder once a week.

Why do i think it's overkill? I have a 1.8a and I've running over 15 apps at the same time, with barely ANY lag.

If you really want brownie points, hookup the computer with two of those seagates running in raid1. imagine him BRAGGING to his friends about how is computer is 100% backed up EVERY SECOND. Plus, with no real ventilation that cpu will hit a very nice 2.2(at least, that's actually pathetically low. but, we're going cautious here.) and then the ram will be faster too.
