Phenom II 955 or 965 (i would say get a C3 if he is into OC'ing, that's the 125w version)
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3
XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770
Antec Twelve Hundred
OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI 600W
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKB 500GB 7200 RPM
SONY Black 18X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model DDU1681S-0B
SAMSUNG P2070 High glossy black 20"
should be about $1000, but this is Canadian im looking at, and an aftermarket CPU cooler is a must of yuor OCing with a C3 CPU (stock coolers can do 200~300mhz OC's on C3's, but i don't recommend it)
Hope i helped.
