That power supply is a good pick, although he's more inclined towards a Corsair PSU... it's Seasonic made though, isn't it? I'm sure he'll be fine with it.

It's pretty hard to change a lot, isn't it? :p  I tried working around a 2011 socket, and it went over. A GTX 690 would go over. A better motherboard wouldn't be necessary. XD
