Default Budget Build for a Friend

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.

CS 1.6, Quake Live, and Flight Simulator X for gaming. As for other things, downloading movies, music messing around with Windows and Linux etc.
2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread

As cheap as possible.

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.

U.S.

4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.
Intel
5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.
Keyboard, mouse, OS, monitor.
7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.
Most likely just the CPU, possibly the RAM.
8. WHEN do you plan to build it?
As soon as possible.
