I like your build it looks good. You say for normal use, he wouldn't need an HD 6950 for "normal" use but for gaming. That's a lot to spend for average use. Integrated graphics is plenty for the average Joe, but I would get that card for me! In fact, I plan to soon.

When you create builds, you should research what you can get for amount of money $X. I think you thought that 500 build ought to use an APU from AMD.

I'm not sure if you even clicked my build!

It's pretty good. What is the monitor resolution though.
