FX-57 - 800
Asus A8N32 SLi Deluxe - 220
G.SKILL Extreme Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR - 150
7900GTX - 500
and 400 on PSU, Case, DVD and HDD.. should be more than enough
For something that has to be future proof, a single core processor does not make much sense.

That hard drive is ok, but it is a good idea to get 16mb cache.

Here is the monitor I would suggest:

DAEWOO L1711MN w/DVI Silver 17" 8ms LCD $205

You'ld be better off getting the Powercolor X1900XT, and then using Winflash to change the BIOS to an XTX. That's what I did w/ mine, w/ zero problems. Techpowerup.com has the tools and the BIOSes to do it. Save yourself some coin

Use the Winflash v1.05 at the bottom of the page, and the Powercolor X1900XTX BIOS

You shouldn't be afraid of Overclocking you only need to OC the processor 20MHz to get to 4800+ speeds. By not spending the extra money you can put it toward something else.

Spending $160 more for .2GHz is plain stupid when you can go into the BIOS up the clock and save $160!!!!!

There will be NO stability issues since it's such a minor OC

but it's your money, I'm just giving you a suggestion

The powersupply is a little costly. If he is going to be keeping this computer for a while, he definitely want to go dual core. I hear the P180 has a rather flimsy door construction that often warps.
