any heat sink that anyone can recommend.
Yeah, no crossfire possible, but there's usb 3 and other goodies.
Stock heatsink is fine for non-overclockers.
I overclocked my non-black edition 10% on stock heatsink and still kept it under 62 C at load.

Change some of those choices
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 1600 CL7-8-7 for $50 shipped
Heatsink: Xigmatek GAIA. Dark Knight with mounting for the proper direction.
Video card: Sapphire GTX 460 768MB - $135, $115 AR. Will outperform 5770 at same price.

Looks good!
However, that Silverstone PSU is no more than a rebranded Corsair CX500 with less warranty. At which point I would either take the CX500 itself or the Antec BP 550 Plus $65, $50 AR
More can be saved with getting Samsung F3 on Superbiiz

If you don't mind losing CrossfireX capability, then rather than spending $239, $229 AR you can spend a flat out $197 on the x4 840 + M4A87TD EVO and this should put that recommendation within budget

Maybe with that M4A87TD EVO board, some lower voltage RAM? Seeing as its got 8+1 power phasing
G.Skill's ECO series has some nice ram @ 1.35v, which will also give lots of overclocking headroom, should his friend delve deeper into the OCing world later.

Here's the CX500: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139018

I don't see why 8+2 power phasing would make anyone want to get lower voltage RAM

I would actually take the CL7-8-7 Ripjaws over the CL9 ECO..... primarily due to pricing. If ever going for the ECO, get the 7-8-7 kit. There's no promo code on it that brings it down to around $50-55 though so it'd be more pricey.

Lower voltage RAM would put less strain on the +1 part of the phase that the board has

Actualllly...... no
The +1/+2 powers the integrated memory controller/CPU-NB
Memory power comes from the 24-pin and runs on its own VRM system
