    Yes the use is gaming, he plays call of duty, crysis, stuff like that
  4. i recomend this:

    mobo - asus m4a89gtd pro/usb3
    Processor - AMD Phenom II X4 965 or 955
    Ram - 4 GB 1600 DDR3 CL7
    HD - samsung spinpoint f3 1tb
    GPU - ati raedeon hd5850
    Power Supply - corsair hx650w
    dvd burner lg/lite on/sony
    12 in 1 Card Reader(just if he needs it
    Mircrosoft Windows 7 Home ultimate 64 bit
  5. Switch to a 1gb 460gtx or a 5850 for the video card, get an x4 955 as the processor as it will perform better in games for cheaper and get a better power supply with less watts (Corsair/Antec/ect 500-600w).
    Or, if Crossfire/SLI is going to be used in the future, get a better power supply Corsair/Antec/ect 750w) and get a motherboard that can be used for crossfire/SLI like this:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131636&cm_re=980a-_-13-131-636-_-Product

    Also stop making new threads every few hours with the same content.

    EDIT: juanchioo's build looks good, however a tx750 would be better if your son is going to purchase another graphics card and SLI/Crossfire.
    Also, that motherboard is almost the same as the ASRock 870 EXTREME3, however the board he suggested is 60$ more expensive.
  6. Recent Build I put together for a friend that wanted a 460 gamer:

    (Could go with the 1TB F3 if you'd like more space)

    CD DVD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16827106334

    Cooler - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185125
    (Could use a bit better one, but these are great coolers and still even allow some OC head room)

    Fans - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103077
    (This case has 3 open 140mm fan slots, Adding one exhaust to the top and one intake on the side panel to blow directly on the video card will give great cooling, in addition the the included 120mm fans it comes with)

    CD DVD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16827106334
