Do you need monitor, keyboard, mouse, OS?

That'll add on the extra $200+. Make sure to get a 64 bit OS.

The above build will work.

can't even tell you how many things are wrong with that build

i5 2500 Wrong
go for an i5 2500k (unlocked allows overclock even if you don't want it now youll want it in the future)- also its good for gaming

mobo- THats an old north bridge- this is a much better board that will allow for ivy bridge in the future

graphics- thats so much less than he can aford

ram- ok but thats a tier two brand something like gskill is better

case- low tier case haf 912 would be better

hard drive- first good thing i have seen

psu- u sure u know what your doing? NEVER CRAP OUT ON A Psu,. Dont buy rosewill- instead get get antec, corsair, seasonic, pc power and cooling. soemthing like that
