One of my friends has a budget of $700 or less to make a mid-range gaming computer that can do fallout 3, skyrim, crysis, and some other non-graphically intense games as well. I was helping him put together a computer on newegg and want to make sure this will work. He also want to make sure that he also has the right tools to put together the computer as well (everything listed below).
-----
Case:
ZALMAN Z11 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Motherboard:
GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

CPU/Processor:
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

GPU/Video Card:

He will be connecting his computer to a 1080p hdtv using HDMI and his input/output will be some gaming mouse + gaming keyboard (wired usb - both of them). He is also buying these tools to use to put together the computer as well as having me help him:

Paste:

Toolket:
Rosewill RTK-015 15 Piece Standard Computer Tool Kit

Anti-Static:
