Honestly if it were me and I had to choose AMD I would not get anything less than an 83xx. Anything less and I'd ask you to consider an Intel build.

It depends on what games will be played. Since you are not overclocking you should be able to fit a locked Sandy Bridge i5 and a 7950 within a $750-$800 budget since you dont need the HDD.

Is there any obvious bottle-necks here? If i end up with a smaller budget and have to downgrade the processor: Phenom (9xx BE) or maybe the 6 core fx? down grade Gpu or Cpu? Think this case only comes with 1 90mm exhaust fan, will case temp be a prob? Any one wanna venture a guess at retail cost of a rig like this?
Honestly also, is there a comparable (price/performance) intel setup?
The main purpose will be for gaming, "DayZ", "eve online", and probably fps's. And general (20 year old) web usage.

Grab this instead of the unlocked cause you won't overclock anyway :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115233
with this mobo because it has freakin gold capacitors: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293

The rest is up to you. the only benefit going with the 990fx platform is the option to get steamroller and possibly excavator later but it's up to your friend.

Even if he does not plan on overclocking he should still get the 3570K over what you suggested. The 3570K is only $5 more and it will hold the re-sale value much better than a locked version of the processor.

Not to mention the 3570K is factory clocked 300MHz faster.

That's just caps with gold plastic-housing you know...

Its MOSFETs aren't "gold" through...

Didn't notice the price gap was so little, 3570k is probably the better route. but if re-selling is in the OP's friend's future keep in mind that it's easier to sell a good board than a not-so-good board.
