You can pay less more and opt for the 2.4ghz E4600.
E4500 = 2.2GHz = $119.99
E4600 = 2.4GHz = $139.99 costs 16.67% more than the E4500, 9.09% faster
E4700 = 2.6GHz = $149.99 costs 25% more than the E4500, 18.19% faster
So you can spend an extra $20 and get the E4600 or spend an extra $30 and get the E4700.
Even if there isn't much difference in performance consider that its only an extra $30 on top of $1000. Considering he'll probably have it for a while.....
Anyway good luck with your build. Hopefully it won't set ablaze and ruin your reputation forever.
