    Mostly gaming. He wants to try some video stuff too, nothing too crazy I hope.

    Currently it has:
    600w Power supply unknown brand
    intel d975xbx mother board
    core 2 duo 6600 @ 2.4 ghz
    8GB old mem
    2 Radeon HD 5770 video cards
    ATX tower case
    keyboard, mouse, windows 7, dual monitors, WD 1tb 7200rpm sata3 hdd

    Just noticed my original post cut off what I was using from the old computer...
    ATX tower case, keyboard, mouse, windows 7, dual monitors, HDD

    Oops

    Build is good, consider a 770 if you can afford it.
