Use the money saved and invest in some kind of SSD. Especially if you're suggesting a Z68 board.
Probably fine. If hes going to be strictly using internet and word processing, I would even go as far as dropping the board down to one of the 100 dollar models, as well as the 2500K to a 2300. 1000 is a beefy word processor. The biggest place the OP will notice a difference is SSD.

GT430/440 should be fine for anything including (I think) 3D BluRay. Open box or after rebate $40-60, HD 5570 OR 5670 are better cards

Please note when Z68 Boards say no video chipset look for video connections on the motherboard, the Sandy Bridge chipsets include "GPU" in the CPU.

FWIW the Gigabyte GA Z68M D2H would be fine in this application, includes "outs" for VGA, DVI, and HDMI. (about $100)

The 2500K has the best "on chip video" HD3000 (40 % better than HD2000). Last I looked the Cooler Master Hyper 212 + was about $28 shipped from the egg (newegg).
How do you like your cases in look and build quality?
Large and heavy duty (Cooler Master 922 or 912) lighter and smaller (NZXT Source 210 [210 Elite features USB3]) $50-80.
Is this a keep forever case or an easy build/good home?
I like the BitFenix Shinobi, among many others, Lian Li Lancool like the PC-K58 come to mind.
I believe the Seasonic 620 may be on sale, worth a look. Actually unless you have future plans for overclocking or video card upgrades a Corsair CX 430 or XFX 450 would be fine, or an Antec EA380. Sandy Bridge are very energy efficient.

Asus has a well regarded BR Drive, as does Samsung ($70-80), LG have been higher cost I think, remember you will need software to run BR.


Hard Drive prices are very high because of flooding in Thailand, be aware.

I see an ASUS 24 inch monitor for $200, a Samsung 27 inch for $300.
I like and have Viewsonic 23 inch and have been very happy with an Hannespree 23 inch picked up on sale.
