    As for building it...not much that can go wrong really, there's virtually no difference in the way AMD and Intel rigs come together. Just a different chip with a similar-looking motherboard :P

    For your graphics, why would you want one "equal" to it? You would want one significantly better or you'll feel your money wasn't put to the best use. To see a big enough improvement over your 9800GT, I would recommend HD5770 at a minimum. GTX460 768mb is the next leap up in terms of performance, and GTX460 1gb and HD6850 being the higher-end cards. Look up the prices and take your pick = /

    I'm aware that you've recommended a TX650 and he's also picked a 680w, I was just reassuring him that anything above 500w will do the job (so people stop throwing him off with "lawl that psu isn't good enough" due to not reading through the posts).

    Generally

    Phenom = Performance
    Athlon II = $/Cost Ratio
