Unless your older video card is actually decent then buying all those parts won't do you any good.

Could pick up a used Phenom II x4 955 or 965 and then a mobo with a 970 or preferably 990 chipset, possibly even a refurbished one. That should save some cash and will be a decent enough system for the next 2-3 years. I just did this for a relative and it worked out quite a bit cheaper than my original plan of a used i7 920.

It's ok. You'd be looking at playing at around medium settings.

The video card is still somewhat capable. Could do with an upgrade soon.

I'd say upgrade. Keep the Case, hard drive and the video card, and upgrade the rest of it.

No. Avoid that CPU (FX 4130) like the plague. It's a bulldozer FX.

If you're planning to go FX only go with: 4300/4320/4350/6300/6350/8320/8350. Piledriver CPUs. Anything other than that is pretty bad because of its architecture.

Can't argue with the rest of it though.

Yeah it's better.

Could just leave the GPU out. He'll be alright with his for a while and better to save up for a good one than to spend more by taking baby-steps up.
