He doesn't need a monitor, keyboard, Os, etc...

He would like to do some moderate gaming.

Anyone have any ideas?

Use 4GB ram instead of 8GB and it will be about $400 after rebates.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nFGddC wouldn't be too bad to start.
When possible, later, purchase:
- http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2 and overclock the CPU
- Another, identical stick of RAM: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/kingston-memory-hx318c10f4
Even later, you can think about upgrading the video card to something like a GTX 760 or R9 270X.

lol that's dumb. Just because he'll end up with a weaker machine than a PS4 doesn't mean he'll end up with a worse machine than a PS4.

Even a weak PC has a much better library.

About the best you can do with that budget. It will play any game out just fine if you lower the settings, and will probably run most games on medium or high depending on how old they are

You'd have a hard time beating this deal. But it's a daily deal, so you've got today to decide.
