You didn't specify your budget.

Nothing to see here.

not "anybrand" lol
go with crucial, patriot, g skill, corsair, with 4-4-4 timings
and seagate makes higher quality drives than samsung
go with 7200.10 series 250gb or 320gb
and the e4500 isnt much more
and if he's not RAID'ing the P35-DS3l is a cheaper option
as his budget is probably not UBER high he might not need a modular Active PFC psu
