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.
