Default New PC install ideas

Alright my friend just got all of his parts today and put it together, I'm trying to think of a list of things for him to install now that everything is setup. Anyone got any ideas besides.

MSI Afterburner
Core Temp
Malware Bytes / AVG Free 2013
Chrome/Firefox whichever he prefers.
OC Scanner for the fragmenting test.
Getting some blanks right now, maybe CPU Mark?

Drivers are all installed already.

I don't believe he watches really anything on his PC for video so, VLC Player and Codec Packs are not needed.

If there is no OCing planned then all those programs really aren't needed. Also, we have a software subsection for future reference.
