So, with a $1000 total system budget, I figured I could put some decent parts in it that should keep him happy for a year or two.
$1000 budget? Damn, that's a mighty fine surfing rig! Well, why not go for some basic board (EP45-DS3L), a nice video card (4850, 8800GT), 2 Gb of Ram, and a 500 Gb 7200.11 HDD?

That should be within your budget, right?
