I should have made a better point with the tv recommendation. I mention this for various reasons.
1) If he has a tv in place that could save money and space
2) if he has vision problems or just is too far away from monitor, a tv may offer better options.
The downsides of TV opposed to monitors can be
1) tv's can but are not ideally made for PC use (although they are becoming more so due to the media machine market), that said, if he is in a small or compact room, the higher power required to run on TV can cause greater heating issues. Most of the time this can be easily taken care of by making sure your machine is built with airflow in mind and placed in a place in the room for easy air flow access.
2) the graphics settings for monitors can be a bit easier to setup then tv's. Not saying they can't be setup properly, but some tv brands can be a hassle.
Again, these are just things to think about.
