Intel is still a bit expensive. If he's not a serious hardcore enthusiast then I recommend an AMD X2 3600.
I wouldn't go with a PSU that came with a case. I would get an Xclio 450BL for 37 bucks and then something like a 30 case. You can go with a stock one but the Xclio 450BL is a VERY good PSU for the money and will last for years.
I would get a 1GB stick of G.skill ram as well. Downgrade to AMD and you will have a much bigger budget. If he he only watches movies and doesn't game then the 7300GT isn't needed even. Onboard would be fine. If you dont want onboard though I would suggest a 7600GT for light gaming, the budget on an AMD would permit one.
