I went with the older AM3 platform over the new sandy bridge because value is desired over performance and SB would have been overkill for his use, and i choose the GPU because he's only gaming at 1680x1050 and i hoping it will be enough to max most games out. But i'm not %100 on that. Anyone able to confirm?
