You just said he wasn't going to be doing anything extensive. Why such expensive parts? Are you going to try to introduce him into gaming?

Once again...

1) What PSU do you have?
2) What case do you have?
3) You said you don't need Windows, what Windows are you using? Is it 64-bit or 32-bit?
4) What is he using the computer for if not gaming? Just internet and word processing? Or is he into graphics editing, encoding, folding, etc? We need more info or you're going to get nothing but builds that are irrelevant to his situation.

Also, how old is the PSU? Might make sense to replace it if he's been using it for 3+ years. The Antec Earthwatts 430W is selling for $30 after MIR until the end of today (Monday). If he doesn't need an intense graphics card (which it sounds like he won't since he doesn't game) then that would be a good fit.

or even the evga 8800gs would do great for $109 and there's a 30 mir, then i would get the 2160 and overclock to e8400 territory if he needs the speed?

The PSU is a Thermaltake 430w something... I will find out later... It's a good one though.
Case is from his last custom computer.. It's fine.

Is the 8800GS > than the 9600GT 512?

I put in the G.Skill memory instead of the mushkin. Also I wouldn't be ordering from newegg because I have a special place locally, so I look at Newegg for the "about" price.

If I get the 4GB I may put 64bit Vista Ultimate.

It's probably this PSU: Thermaltake 430W (very popular and cheap)

No, the 9600GT 512MB is better than the 8800GS. And he doesn't need either if he's not gaming. That'd be like owning a Porsche and only driving on 25mph roads.

You didn't answer my question about what case he has, so I'll assume it's something decent with good airflow (a necessity if you're overclocking this rig, which you should). Here's my suggestion:

$130 - E7200
$100 - Gigabyte P35 DS3R (after $20 MIR)
$55 - HD3650 512MB 128-bit (after $20 MIR)
$37 - Xigmatek HDT-S1283
$90 - 2x2GB G.Skill DDR2 1066 (I think the price goes up after Monday night)
$30 - 20X DVD Burner w/ LightScribe
$95 - Western Digital 640GB HDD (very fast drive)
$6 - Artic Silver 5
-----
$513 Total

That should leave you enough cash for an operating system. You don't need Vista Ultimate, Vista Home Premium has all the important features. If you don't need an operating system, then consider a second WD 640GB drive and run them in RAID0. Or the Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer sound card for $84 if he's really into music.

Lol you guys are great, except I will not be overclocking this thing. I would if it was my own rig but I rather not deal with OCing someone else's stuff. So now I am left with I don't need the hard drive. I want that 3.0Ghz Wolfdale and no MIR. Those things hardly work and not worth the wait.

I have ~600$ avail.

I have AS5 and everything else in my store stock.. I am just wondering whats nice to put together. He is only 16 so I am sure he would be gaming if he had the chance.

Well if you're not overclocking and you already have a hard drive, then that frees up another $132 from my build. You could put $60 toward the E8400 instead of the E7200, leaving $72 that could go toward a better video card since you think he might be gaming. With that budget you're looking at a 9600GT or an HD3870, which is plenty of power for today's games. However, that's really stressing the 430W Thermaltake. It would work, but you're pushing it.
