All right, my friend's birthday is coming up soon, and he's planning on using the money to build a new computer to play some games on. He doesn't need it to be too powerful, just good enough to play Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike Source, COD4 and WoW around high/max. He's gonna get ~$800 on his birthday and I decided to spec out a build for him since he trusts me more with computers and stuff
I'm just posting a thread here to check if any of the more experienced guys here could help me out

All the suggestions above would add $40 but I think it is well worth the extra investment.
