What about this?

Well, this should be more then fine for his needs.

Motherboard+case($110) - MSI B85I LGA 1150 USB 3.0 Mini ITX + Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1586684

CPU+Optical($83) - Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell 3.0GHz + LITE-ON DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1576505

RAM($40) - Team Elite 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313072

PSU($40) - CORSAIR CX series CX430
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

Total Price - $269(with promo code VMEMADNESS while using V.Me Payment method). Price includes shipping, does not include rebates.

I'd personally add this

GPU($65) - SAPPHIRE 100369-2GL Radeon R7 240 2GB 128-bit DDR3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202055

Total Price - $330(with promo code VMEMADNESS while using V.Me Payment method). Price includes shipping, does not include rebates.

I could likely get the build cheaper if you didn't mind a m-atx.

*edit* I'll just post it here, wasn't hard to do.

Case($25) - Rosewill FBM-01 Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147123

Motherboard($49) - MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130731

CPU+Optical($83) - Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell 3.0GHz + LITE-ON DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1576505

RAM($40) - Team Elite 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313072

PSU($40) - CORSAIR CX series CX430
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

Total Price - $222(with promo code VMEMADNESS while using V.Me Payment method). Price includes shipping, does not include rebates.

With GPU it's $283.

Another possible option is replacing the RAM with this

RAM+Motherboard($109) - MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 + G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1573289

Total Price(with change) - $250 OR $312 with added GPU.

+1000000000000000 rep for the case/board combo. That brought the total package down by $60

CPU: Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz Dual-Core Processor ($118.93 @ OutletPC)
Motherboard: MSI H87M-E35 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($68.79 @ Amazon)
Memory: G.Skill 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($44.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Antec EarthWatts Green 380W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($44.99 @ Mac Mall)
Optical Drive: LG GH24NSB0 DVD/CD Writer ($15.99 @ Micro Center)
Total: $333.68
That will get him what he needs. I'm assuming you can chop the HDD out of the current computer.

Thanks for taking the time to find all that stuff. I went with your PSU but for the case and the board I went with the combo he just suggested. As for the CPU, the new Haswell Pentiums are fine for what he needs. I found the GXXX something or other for $70 on Newegg. It sucks that they don't make one between the Pentium and the i3 though for around $90 or something.

I know, they should make the i3 Pentium 830. lol.

I think the i3 would be worth the price difference. The iGPU is like 3X faster. The Pentium G3220 is the best value in it's class though. If it were me, I would go i3-4130T

Reason for the "T" model is that I would slap it in a VESA mount case like the ISK110 and mount it to the back of the monitor.

SSD would be a requirement to fit the case (good excuse to use an SSD)

I also think spending the extra $20 to get a 2x4GB is a no-brainer. I can use 4GB just browsing the web in LINUX.

$20 for more RAM for him is not worth it. He uses Windows 7 on 2 GB of RAM with few issues. He has a 4 year old i3 CPU that runs kind of fine. And I am not going to pay for an SSD. I like the case I picked out with RAM but I might look at the i3 CPUs a bit more if that is the consensus of everyone. This is a sub $300 PC for him to use Excel, Word, and Internet Explorer.
