For build 1 guy...
It's really hard to make him a build that fits under $1500 and has a $200 Bluray burner...
But I did my best and came up with this build for $1543 (After shipping)
No OS, Keyboard, Monitor, or Mouse included.

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EARS 1.5TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

If he's not gaming and just watching blu-ray movies and burning them this build and graphics card are sufficient.
If he games, stretch for a 5770... ($150 vs the $100 4850)

Now...
He can get pretty much the same blu-ray ripping performance if he gets an i7 860 instead of an i7 920 and that build would fall under the budget.
So build 1 guy build # 2 with the i7 860 would look like this.
For $1406 with shipping. No OS included.
Graphics card upgraded to a 5770.

In fact, for build #2 guy, I can go even cheaper than that and still guarantee it will max WoW.
A 5830 and a Phenom II X2 555 would probably max WoW.
Saving $100~

For gaming there isn't really a large difference between them.
