no hard drive shown in the list, no GPU, nor an OS

edit: and you have a non-"k" CPU with a Z87 motherboard, if not overclocking (or planning to SLI/Crossfire) Z87 is not necessary

Is your friend overclocking?
Does he/she already have an internal HDD?

If your friend isn't OCing, get an H77 motherboard, and you can probably lower the power supply to a quality 500-550w, if there are no plans to SLI in the future.

Possible consideration of a mobo:

As long as it is a quality psu by XFX/Corsair/Antec/Seasonic/(other top tier psu makers), 500-550w would be plenty and still have room for some minor upgrades in the future.
