Agreed, even if he is OC'ing, the e8400 is a crazy chip, you don't need all 4 cores for gaming, even if your doing some slight multitasking on the side.

Revised setup (considering your recommendations) as follows:

E8400
EP45-DS3L
4850
4gb
Samsung DVD burner
WD Black 1tb
Vista Home Premium

I'm still a bit unsure as to what case/psu (modular preferred) to get. Would a 500w psu be enough for the above system?
Looks great, 500Watts should be plenty, just make sure that its a quality make/brand PSU. Anything Corsair, Seasonic, SilverStone, most Antec's, some OCZ's, or PC P&C, should be good.
