Oh yeah and don't buy factory overclocked components because you can manually overclock these components yourself.
If he's going to spend 1k then yeah, it would cost the same. But the parts would be different. One things, when building an OCing rig, you need to invest on good cooling. Secondly, some pieces OC better than others, so you really need to do some research before buying. Try to figure out what has better OCs. Buying a Non-OC rig is much simpler than buying an OC rig, because all though you can OC about anything, some are better than others.
