with his budget, I would build now, he's looking for a budget gaming system, price drops won't affect his build much...
with what he has, I would replace...
the motherboard...GIGABYTE GA-P31-S3G - $75 shipped
the cpu...E7200 - $120 shipped
the gpu depends on what type of gaming, but this is a decent little card...SAPPHIRE HD 3850 - $100 shipped
if you can find a 9600GT or an 8800GT for about the same price I would get either one of those instead...
