  1. Can't go wrong with the GTX 460 1Gb. Also do you still need a Case and a ODD? If it need to run cool you should probably pick up some good fans, and a CPU cooler as well.

    Now does manufacturer matter? I was gonna pick an EVGA card but there's an ASUS that's cheaper.
  3. ASUS DirectCU > MSI Cyclone = EVGA imo.

    EVGA is amazing and my favorite Nvidia company, but the ASUS DirectCU is very good.
  4. For some reason, I have a feeling that this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121391

    Will not fit on my board:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128371

    Is that a good board or should I choose another one?
  5. Why wouldn't that fit? Also does your friend need a monitor? What about an operating system? Or does he just need the tower?

    It looks like the Southbridge is too close to the PCI slot. At least from what I can see in the example shots.

    Most likely a version of Windows 7 64-bit.

    Right now he just needs the tower.

    That's...perfect. I guess i-Core is the new norm.
  9. If you want to spend extra money don't forget about the monitor, keyboard, mouse, operating system, and CPU Heatsink. So just shop around a bit.
