Frankly, it would make more sense to buy him a Ryzen 1800X cpu, an AM4 motherboard and some DDR4.
That way his compile times on the software he is working on would be faster.
I got a FX-8370 + MoBo + 16 GiB DDR3 to offer when I switch to a Ryzen-based gaming PC the next two weeks. Not quite the same league as a Ryzen, but for building jobs on Linux more than adequate. If some Dev is in need.
Mark's current system is FM2 based. Not quite as powerful as the AM3+ based system you have, but I think he wants to move straight to an 1800x.
He wants a significant reduction in compile times.
But thanks for offering.[ Edited by Jim 10.08.2017 - 02:43 ]
