@r3xx3r I do like that motherboard. @Timop I did try to get him to the HD 6850, but he didn't want it. I'll ask again. I'll switch out to 4gb ram to make up the extra cost of the 6850 see if I can't persuade him.
I will talk with him and see what he says. What do you guys think of this monitor? He is pretty content on getting it. Maybe a cheaper 1920x1080 monitor? I'll keep looking around as well.
