$500 Build for friend. Opinions?

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aoqm-6PvQW_OdDJFT2lwNExtMFhDTmtmcWQwc0h3U3c#gid=0

Wants to use for normal use & gaming on bf3, has 1080p monitor and key/mouse, OS he can get from me for free. Got an extra key through MSDN!

Click the link. It has my proposed build.

    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.

    Somehow forgot BF3 & gaming in there.

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