Default Need advice on $500 tower/building for friend...

Hello everyone! So I have been talking to some people at work and one of my friends is wanting me to build him a tower... he has a mouse and keyboard but the main thing is that he wants to hook his computer up to his TV (resolution is 1366x768). I think it is a 32 inch but it could be a 37 inch... I tried talking him into a PC monitor but he is all about hooking it up to his TV.

He wants an inexpensive computer to just surf the net and do random word stuff on but his big goal is to hook it up to his tv... Does anyone have any ideas as to what would be a good setup for this? I am thinking AMD cpu would be the best route but I am not sure on the remaining parts... He said he would be willing to spend $500 but maybe a little bit more if needed... he has also asked about getting a Blue-Ray player for it... so a Blue-Ray optical drive... thanks in advance for the help!

CPU: AMD or Intel
Video Card:
Optical drive: Blue-ray cheap...
