My System Specs

Smile New Builds

The 1366 is the way I'd go. The 950 foer just a bit more is pretty good, especially if he's not going to do a heavy overclock.
The P6X58D-E is a better choice imho. I own one and love it.
The Corsair psu is a better choice imho, however I've never owned the other which has a respectable rep.
The suggestion of a WD black is a good one as well, though you can't go wrong with either.

Everything chosen with some possible changes will make a pretty darn good system. I'm sure he'll enjoy the new system.
