Default Help for American friend, basic gaming pre-built system?

Hey guys, pretty simple this one.

A guy I know in the US wants a new computer. He was talking about a budget of $1000 but after asking him what he wants from it there really is no point in paying that, he was looking at some overpriced HP thing charging him $350 just to add a 120GB SSD...

All it needs is lightgaming (nothing too demanding, he plays an online browser game called Runescape for the most part, apparently his mac can sometimes lag a bit when he has settings on high but I really doubt it needs much) and general browsing, office work etc.

He wants a pre-built and I don't think he wants to bother with custom built gaming PC type online sites if possible. I was just wondering if there are mainstream PC companies over in the US which sell something that sounds like it would fit the bill? Clearly the budget is $1000, but I'm thinking it could be done for a tad cheaper. Anything on the egg or the likes?

Doesn't need a monitor btw.

cheers for any recommendations.
