We ordered the above list a day or two ago; I brought it here just for confirmation that I did ok building it. I don't really see how "spend $50 more on the video card" is good feedback, though... obviously the system will be "much better," but at the $90 AR price point the 5770 has no competition that I could find - and that's what we wanted to spend on a GPU.
I wish I'd gone with Sandy Bridge now that I've researched it a bit more, but I really like Gigabyte and this motherboard was a steal... Oh well. If he wants to overclock in the future it sounds like this chip will be better than the 2100 anyway.
From what I understood from your list I thought you meant that you had compiled the list, you just didn't buy the parts yet. I was suggesting the ideal build as the cost would've come out to be the same cept you'd be getting a much better CPU and GPU. Course, my build doesn't include those very expensive peripherals.
