hmm, search before u post, this had already been asked many times

for Intel, I would suggest for 50K

Pentium 4 630 3 Hz, with EIST
Intel 915GAV motherboard
2X512 MB DDR400 RAM, look for a reputed brand like kingston or kingmax
XFX Geforce 6600GT with 256 MB RAM = 14K
Logitech X-230 speakers, if he wanst 2.1 channel, for 5.1 channel, U better take a look in the market for the available models, & then tell here
Logotech Internet Pro desktop, Wireless, or wired, which ever he preferes
cabinet of his choice, a powersafe or VIP 400W power supply atleast, or Colorsit M400U, they are cheap & really strong,

2-ASUS A8N-E-6k
3-1GB KINGSTON 400MHz RAM-5.6k
4-6800GT CARD-19k
5-80GB HITACHI SATA2 HDD-3k
6-SONY DVD-ROM,CD-RW-2.6k

Some suggestions:
Get any processor above 3000+ with venice core processor for overclockablity. They may cost a bit more.
Get two 512MB ram modules. I think there's a value pack from kingston. This is for dual channel memory.
Get more disk space. 160GB will be minimum since he is into gaming and music. Trust me, even 320GB won't be enough with a powerful pc.
And since he into gaming, get a laser mouse. They are so cheap and feel great too. And make sure you buy a keyboard with palm rest. It's good for extended gaming sessions.

And I think you might be needing a good smps and/or an appropriate cabinet.
With not much money left, you may want to invest in an altec lansing 2.1 speaker set.

Some suggestions !

Get 3000+ Ocing the 3000+ plus with a good Mobo like a8n-e to 3200+ or even 3500+ is fairly easy. Avoid Kingston like plague, it doesn't overlock at all. Get Twinmos or ram based on Hynix d43 chip.

The 6800GT is around 20k which imho is totally not worth the price. Get the BIG 7800GT much faster and better, priced around 3-4k(the 3000+ will save you 2.5k) over the 6800gt. For games, the installation size is bloating to alarming levels. My hl2 steam install is currently around 7GB ! So a bigger hdd is needed, besides a 160GB hdd should cost 1k more. All this would bloat your budget by a some margin but it would be for the better. :)

Yeah get the 3000+ venice, with A8N-E you can overclock very well, my 3000+ A8N-E did 2.475 GHz from 1.8Ghz with 1.4125vcore and on stock cooling, this is the speed of AMD 63 3800+. and ya if your friend can push the budget a little more try to go for 7800GT, this is the best VFM card available in the market.

if u dont wanna onverclock then the rig is quite decent but all the prices are expensive buddy. U can save around 500-600/- more if u try bargaining. and ya ,

:arrow: which company's 6800gt are u going for ?? they are hardly available these days.

:arrow: Go for a 120/160 GB SATA 2 hdd.

:arrow: Get an Antec PSU. Dont risk such expensive stuff with some cheap PSU.

:arrow: Decide on Speakers. I suggest a 5.1 setup such as the AL-VS3151R , as i bet r frnd will watch movies too.

you should put them in Raid .. So take 160*2 ..

:arrow: MB is good,

also temme bout the speakers and
Speakers.. Creative Megaworks 550 (5.10) atleast
