First off, I'd like to know what this system is build for? Gaming? Encoding? Will you be overclocking at all?

If you could give us an idea, we'd figure it out much easier.

Also, don't go for that Ripjaws with CL 9's on it. You can get a much better kit than that.

This kit is very good. It cost $64.99, but with the promo code of "EMCKGJK38", you get the $15 discount. So its $50 bucks!!!! Even lower when I first bought mine.

Lol, someone might need to go back to first grade math class to freshen up.

On the GPU, you can have a gtx460 at similar price and better performance if he is ok with nVidia cards.

One of the best mechanical hard drives out there.

If he's not overclocking you can axe the heatsink, but if he wants something quiet, get something else.

EDIT
You need to axe quite a bit of things lol, if all those add up to ~400 (too lazy to check) then you have 100 for an

1. Great drive. I love my WD Black

2. I am waiting for the next price drop on the 5770, But its the one I am waiting for... so good choice

3. As for the ram, i would look for a dual channel kit, I like a 2x4gb kit. I am running a CL9 and it works for me, however others will say look for a lower CL, if its in your budget go for it, otherwise dont worry about it. If your not going to OC (Which you said) the 1333 will be fine.

4. Good choice on CPU and since you're not going to be OCing it doesn't need to be a black edition. Also...

5. Since there is no OC, I'd skip the aftermarket cooler, sped the $40 on the ram.

6. As for the mobo id look for an 8+2 power desgin, and look for at least a pci bus that supports 2@ x8/x8 or 2@x16/x8. Since this will be a non oc game machine one day you may want to sli/cf your fx card this will allow you to get to that next step.

That 840 is a great chip. I agree, axe the heatsink, stock will be fine. I'm assuming you are buying windows as to why you left a $100 gap?
