Yeah, it's a bit of a haul. My friend is living in Blacksburg atm, so it's even longer for him.

May I suggest 2 changes which would cost I think only $15 more then your build,but it will be more powerful rig ?
Take this mobo instead of p67
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130603
It's only $59 it means you save $50
Now take that saving and get him i5 2400 which is much better then i3 2100 because it's true quad core ( 8 cores hyperthreaded )
It's $190 at newegg which means you only add $15 more ( i3 is $125 )
You can even get him i5 2500 its $210
You cant get him i5 2500k because then you need p67 board
