CPU seems kinda overkill as almost nothing is gonna take advantage of an 8-core processor. The Phenom 975 X4 is gonna give him the same performance in gaming/almost every application to date. Also confused as to why a 600W PSU? Thats gonna be overkill for this build. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
