Yes, as well as on Black Friday, but that's a ways off (two months).

He has now done more shopping around and made some changes to his build. I will put them here in the order he sent them.

1st change:
He changed the hard drive and DVD drive to what trotter said, changed the GPU and PSU and also added a aftermarket fan and heatsink.

It comes out to around $630 after mail-in rebates.

Motherboard+CPU - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

PSU+GPU - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Case+Ram - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

DVD Drive - Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA DVD Writer - Bulk - LightScribe Support - CD / DVD Burners

Hard Drive - Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Fan+Heatsink - Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER RR-H101-22FK-RA 80mm Long life sleeve bearing CPU Cooler

2nd change:
He changed the PSU+GPU combo deal to get 700W instead of 600W. It's about $10 more.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

3rd change:
He changed the ram and case. The case comes with 2 fans installed.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

What do you guys think of these changes and the build overall? I think he will probably buy it now instead of waiting till later.

Well he bought it on Tuesday so I'll probably need help in about a week for assembly advice (I'm going to help him). Thanks for all the advice everyone.
