Yes that is a great price and it will last you the rest of your life no upgrading and when you need more HDD space just get a external hdd.

Why not just find a local place that builds computers, you pick the parts and they build the pc.

How fast is the hdd? I imagine cpu can't be overclocked either. Also don't know the psu.

Even if he gets the parts and takes it to them it would still cost just as much this way he can do a grab and go and play and he is all set.

Make sure when you order that you mention to place some packing foam between the GPU and the inside of the case ...ON EITHER SIDE cause if you do not there is a good chance the GPU will snap and not only brake the GPU but the Motherboard too.

Try and get a hold of the company and make sure to ask what they use it just has to be secure for transport.

A better way would just be to have the GPU shipped separate you just have to unscrew the back plate and plug in the gpu.
