I can't decide which one to choose.I use my PC for hardcore gaming and I want it to last.(Battlefield 3 atm,Crysis 2,Skyrim,Shogun 2...)
CPU: FX 8350 or equivalent Intel CPU-252.17$ for FX
MOBO: I have no idea
GPU: HD 7850(Can get it really cheap) or GTX 660-241.81$ for the HD 7850
Power: I have no idea
Case: I have no idea
HDD: Planning on using the same HDD
After those 2 excluded from the budget I'm left with 556,02 $ for Mobo,Case and power supply and possible CPU/GPU changes
You could get then an i5-3470+h77 mobo.
For the psu a decent one with 550w-650w from corsair,antec, xfx,seasonic,fsp,rosewill, pc power & cooling.
For a card get either the 670 gtx(nvidia) or 7970(amd), if you need a bit cheaper get the 660 ti.
Get a decent case like the antec HAF 912 or similar.
But if he doesn't want to oc, it's better to look out for an i5-3470, i bet even in croatia the price will be much lower, and also a h77 mobo i can bet it will be cheaper than any z77.
It leaves probably even a good margin for the high end card+good case+quality psu+ssd.
