^^ Like the man said really.!! CM 590 or 690 for me though ++

Though I am not a big fan of the Antec cases, the Sonata III is a good case, and the EarthWatts PSU is also a pretty good PSU, but still if I were you, I would go for a CM590 with a Corsair Power supply, you won't regret spending a bit more.

E8400 is pentiful for gaming. 4850 for sure beats a 9800GT anyday and it is kind of future proof, incase your buddy decides to play good FPS or a game sort of Crysis, the 4850 would be a better ideal choice. The Gigabyte EP45-DS3L is more than enough if he's n ot Ocing and just gaming.
