Looks good to me, though you might consider picking up the i5 3570k instead of the i7 and using the money for an SSD instead.

I was thinking of getting an SSD originally, but he also wants to use the computer for graphics programs that may use a lot of CPU power, this was the only reason I didnt get an i5 and an SSD.

I'd still recommend the 3570k. There's very little difference in most programs, and an SSD can make a huge difference to speed of response etc. You may also way to investigate 16GB of RAM if doing lots of video or photoshop work.
