I would still go with the froton 450w you picked out earlier. Its an awesome psu and all your gaining from the other psu is more amps on the +5v rail which you don't need. Also can you down grade to a 160gb HDD (still with 16mb cache) or does he need the space?

If you go with the froton 450w and 160gb HDD, you might be able to get a 2x1gb set of memory. You will see better preformance with games if you do. If you still can't, consider the e4300. Its still a good proc that can overclock just as good as the e6300 with a higher multiplier. Just trying to see if i can get a 2x1gb set in your budget. Go with some g.skill ddr2-800 ram if you do to help out with overclocking.

CPU: e6600 @ 3.2ghz
RAM: 2GB G.Skill HZ PC6400
Mobo: ASUS P5B Deluxe
GPU: Sapphire HD4870
Soundcard: Creative Labs X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty
HDDs: 250GB WD + 750GB WD + 2x1TB WD
Monitor: Samsung 226BW
PSU: OCZ GameXStream 600W
Case: Cooler Master Stacker
OS: XP Professional SP3
Mouse/keyboard: Logitech MX518/Saitek Eclipse II
