I wondered at what do you think about this system. What can I add that would increase performance? My budget is about 1700 Canadian ;/.
I know nothing about overclocking. At what clock speeds could I overclock the video card with my present cooling? And for the speakers, can I use 4.1 speakers with the integrated 4-channel audio in the mobo? Or i need to buy a sound card?
I'm saying that as nice as it looks, whatever he pays will be more than the retail value of the finished system. Of course, it will be better than a retail system. It just seems a little dated with the 1800+ I guess.

I doubt you'll be able to find an OEM system (DELL, Gateway, etc) with a GF4Ti4400, 512MB DDR333 and an Antec SX800 case for $800US. $800US for an OEM system means it'll use value components not high end ones like the DDR266 (rather than DDR333 ) and a GF2MX200 (rather than a GF4Ti4400).
