I made the same comp list with newegg and instore-pickup from microcenter and it was 100$ cheaper and thats including tax.
Closest Microcenter is either central Texas or central Colorado, i live in southern New Mexico , i would love a microcenter

I didn't add the ODD price btw.
And also, you can save even save more money for going for Biostar P67 board (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-317-_-Product) if your friend doesn't need all the extra ports.

Bah! Try this instead...

CPU Cooler:
Motherboard/HDD: ASUS P8P67 B3, Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
GPU: MSI Radeon HD 6950 2GB
PSU: Antec Neo Eco 620W
Optical: Lite-On DVD Burner

If you want CrossFire (dual AMD graphics cards) in the future, I'd recommend a larger power supply. If you plan on SLI (dual nVidia graphics cards) you will need this motherboard/HDD instead, because the regular P8P67 cannot handle SLI at all. The Pro is also marginally better than the non-pro for CrossFire if that floats your fancy.
