My brother decided to build his first computer and just emailed me a list of the parts he bought from NewEgg. For $609.93, that's a hell of a lot of PC.

Shipping was free on everything but the GPU (roughly $6, not included in the total)
Now if only I could get him to learn how to overclock... assuming all of the cores are unlocked. I think I'll pick up 4 more gigs of RAM to make it 8. It's a shame to leave room on the table, and I need to come up with more gift ideas for the holiday.
