I'd get a proper power supply and a decent GPU. an HD 6850 and a 450-500W PSU from a reliable company

I'd suggest $40 for a Power supply around 400W and a Geforce GTS 450 for about $110

what about ram? its not necessary? and where could i find a gts 450 for $110?

my friend isnt really into gaming he just plays 2d games. like maplestory. so i dont think he needs a powerful GPU. IDK just saying.

in that case, yeah, get the 2 GB kit.

I'd still suggest the 430 over the 5550, and the same PSU

Alternately, this GTS 240 with DDR5 is only $39 after rebate:
