Keep the build I suggested, and add in the 7600GT, or 7900GS.

Lol, so you have $500 now. What parts are you looking for? Everything? Including monitor?

Oh, his friend is going to chip in another $100. Might as well get the 7600GT or the 7900GS like b1gapl said.

I'm afraid if I put that in there, it will go over $500. It's really hard to configure a gaming system for such a low price. Unless you go with AMD, I can probably see it happening since they're so cheap. He can probably get a Rosewill PSU and a cheap $30 case.

That just makes it that much harder. I can downgrade all the components I listed, but it won't be a formidable gaming system anymore. I really like that (Gigabyte) motherboard too, but I may have to downgrade it.
