I would go for the eVGA 6800Ultra EE 2 of them and put the in SLI and get a few SCSI 320 drives instead of the slow SATA's.

I suggest watercooling (cause the fans will be LOUD) and the amd FX-55.
but really... that's a waste of money unless your friend wants to play every game at 1280 resolution, all details and 4x AA, AF - ask him to save a few bucks on upgradeable parts and donate a to charity.
