    It depends what kind of "Gaming" you would like to do. You need to be more specific.

    For example, what are you doing other than gaming?

    Memory intensive operations? (Installing, browsing & downloading, etc.)

    Graphical intensive operations? (Audio/photo/video editing & rendering, etc.)

    Or JUST gaming?

    He said he wants to spend less than $2000, and unless you're incompetent at numeracy my build is less than $2000. As far as what other people say about ram, that is their opinion. There are many situations where 8gb may be a bottleneck for such a small investment you can remove that bottleneck. He may play games for now, but down the road he may want to do some recording and maybe some editing. Maybe he'll do some encoding or maybe he'll want to run a VM. Limiting yourself to the lowest common denominator at present, just to save a few bucks, is a shit way to build a computer that is meant to last a few years.
