Since you friend has no interest in overclocking, this build might suite him better. Search for deals as money can be saved.

CPU - Since no overclocking, no need to buy a "K" version.
Cooler - Stock will always be garbage. For the price. Can't beat the Hyper 212 Evo.
Motherboard- No need for a "Z" version since there isn't going to be any overclocking.
Storage - 128GB, Good reviews, Solid company.
VGA - I did some reasearch and this card is slightly better then a GTX 760. 3GB of VRAM will help should he like to turn up some memory intensive eye candy.
Case - Had some money left over so I threw that in there. I had this case and I loved it.
PSU - Good using with good internal parts. Check to see if it's on sale somewhere.

I still have left over money to play with.
