Out of the Blue

I have a buddy interested in a new gaming PC. He doesn't plan on playing games with particularly demanding graphics, but he's still interested in using a custom builder to get a decent setup. I've hand-built almost every machine I've used for the past 25 years, so I don't have a lot of experience to draw upon for a recommendation, so I thought I'd solicit suggestions if any of you have any. I actually wouldn't mind helping him select components and build him a box, but I'm not really interested in providing a lot of technical support after the fact. And while everyone likes a bargain, he's not someone who needs to cut any corners, so the premium for a build and support will not be a hardship. It seems the lowest-end offerings from most builders are probably more powerful than what he thinks he needs, so I'm not sure he shouldn't just look for something off the shelf, but as I say, feedback on gaming PC builders are welcome.

@Blue checkout NZXT BLD. They have a slick system on their site where you choose some games and the resolution and they will show the avg fps you are going to get with the components you choose.
