What's the system to be used for?

And I know you said you've had an earful over the CPU choice but it's still a daft idea, if they're gaming like I assume.

Ah, well if they're dead set on the CPU then with those uses it's not nearly so much a waste.

Only thing I'd recommend is a better PSU, unless you know that to be a good brand (I've never heard of it). So yeah, something like a Corsair.

Yea I remember him mentioning other CPU and RAM intensive uses other than gaming so we were trying to tell him 3820 isn't the right choice. I still think the 3930k would have been a better option as it's still the same CPU with slightly less L3.

The PSU is probably one of the most important components in your computer. Never cheap out on it.
