I would recommend that you cut back on the cost of the case(may not have the best cooling), the Operating System, and pick a Core 2 Duo as the processor. But with a motherboard that you can upgrade the cpu to a quad and if possible, and this is a big if, get a motherboard that supports sli or crossfire configuration and spend a big part of your budget on a real nice graphics card, then at a later date he would be able to upgrade to a Quad and/or buy a matching graphics card and run the sli or crossfire config.
Remember, buying 1 high end graphics card is better than buying 2 cheaper cards and running them sli/crossfire. Just save up later for the second High End Card.
Also, when picking the RAM, Drives, etc, don't go for anything fancy or for looks, just get whatever is the best bang for the buck within your budget.
