So my friends is having his birthday soon and he has a desktop that runs most games at 20Fps he only has source games.
But I am looking for a build for him that can run games at somewhat decent quality ranging from 800-1000 dollars

i would get a gtx 770, which you can get for about 310 bucks, and an amd 8350 for 190 bucks. Those will allow him to play on ultra settings. As a PSU i would recommend a 600w 80plus bronze (since you are on a budget) such as the corsair cx 600. Add in a wd blue hard drive and the cheapest 8 gigs of ram you can find (in my area its kingston hyperx for about 70 bucks), put in on an am3+ board of your choice and you got a high-ultra rig for well under a grand. Of course you can use an ssd, more efficient psu, or an intel cpu if you want to spend the entire budget. However this won't push gaming performance much.

I think this is a fairly solid build for your price range.
