If you got to upgrade the motherboard it would probably be best to upgrade the processor also. Upgrade to a 775 socket and have him pick out a processor in his price range that way you will have more upgradability in the future. If you go with a MB with a 478 socket you kind of stuck with a P4 and will probably be looking to upgrade again really soon.
