Even for 1k a i7 build is really limited, it also heavily depends on gaming cards you want. This is what your friend should get

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100259-1GL Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

under 750 with rebates, i suggest getting a hold of windows 7 RC which is free for a year, save you from buying an os, by that time the actually os will be out.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<
