As for the video card, your really going to only need a card with either a vga and dvi or dual dvi- the latter of the two is recommended for a "sharper" picture, but if he doesnt need a blazing graphics card, there are some great ones you could get for that basic function
also is there any specific storage- or a minimum to go on?
budget as well would be nice

Intels are great but if he wants to use AMD it wont be too big a hit and he can upgrade later the next gen AMD looks like it will be better than conroe by an extensive margin. AMD is also cheaper, the motherboards are like half the price so i wouldn't be all that bothered unless he is really in need of cutting edge cpu performance right now so its nothing to get your panties twisted or have an argument about.
What does he intend to use the system for?

This is a bit better, has dual DVI so you need one card. A 7800 would be even better.
If you only use one card you dont have to go all out and buy a 975 board, a good 965 should be enough, that mobo is pretty good, but if you dont need the features, you could save money and improve in other areas and pump more cash into the graphics card.
Which case? I think a good case is impotant for several reasons.
