My System Specs

Default

You went completely overboard with that PSU and CPU, the case is questionable, weird CPU cooler, plus what are you doing for the video card?

Here is my suggestion for a system build. I'm gonna use parts/prices from DirectCanada or NCIX.

Antec Sonata III Case w/ 500W Antec EarthWatts PSU - $99
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz 1066FSB 8MB Cache 65nm - $209
Asus P5Q Pro P45 ATX Mobo - $140
2x1GB Mushkin HP DDR2-1066 5-5-5-15 996612 RAM - $75
Western Digital 500GB 7200rpm SATA2 WD5000AAKS HD - $73
LG H55N 20X DVD-RW - $26
Windows XP Pro SP2 64-bit - $142
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro LGA775 HSF - $27
Asus Radeon 3450 256MB PCI-E Video Card - $41
Total: $832

Still the above specs are too high end for an office PC. Here is what I think he really will be fine with:

Antec NSK4480 Midtower Case w/ 380W Antec EarthWatts PSU - $68
AMD Athlon64 X2 4600 Brisbane 2x512KB Cache 65nm CPU - $60
Asus M2A-VM 690G AM2 mATX Mobo - $64
2x1GB Mushkin HP DDR2-800 4-4-4-12 996603 RAM - $52
Western Digital 320GB 7200rpm SATA2 WD3200AAKS HD - $67
LG H55N 20X DVD-RW - $26
Windows Vista Business SP1 64-bit - $149
Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro AM2 HSF - $27
Use Integrated Mobo Video - $0
Total: $513

All prices are before taxes and shipping.
