I would pass. The system below would game the same, has new / quality parts, and an upgrade path. The 2600k is for bragging rights and is overkill for gaming. The 2500k will overclock and game the same. You would also have no graphics upgrade path without replacing one, or both, GPUs. The GTX 450 is an OK card, but you shouldn't be expecting a very long life with them if you plan on running high / max deatil in your games.
Im not a big fan of Dell products myself. He was looking at to have something right now (craigslist) then taking the time to research and order the parts. And that this pc cost over 2K new. Thinking of getting a good deal at the moment rather then in the future he will be updating the gpu and so on

Doesn't matter what it cost new... Offer them $600, then drop in a new single GPU (Saphire HD 6950 2GB) for $250. Then down the road buy a second HD 6950 and drop another $100+ for a quality PSU to handle the power draw from both video cards. I doubt if that 875w PSU would get close to its rating. That is about the only way I see to make a "deal" out of that system from CL.
