If your friend can stretch a bit this is what i spec'ed up for a friend of mine for similar needs, except he wanted more room for his ever expanding mp3 and video collection. but i think that X1300 is alot better than what i speced.

I would make sure you get a gig of ram for football manager 2006 if thats what he has as with half that it can take a lot longer processing the games and loading each game.

I would go socket AM2 so it can be upgraded in the future. The asrock board has decent onboard graphics (geforce 6100) which should handle FM 2006 fine.
