Hey all. Building a PC for my cousin, his budget is $600 he DOESN't need: mouse, keyboard, headset, OS, dvd drive, power supply, nor case. He doesn't play very demanding games (mostly mmos) but he wants the best he can get for $600. So imagine he were to start playing bf3 (for lack of a better benchmarking word) tomorrow, he would have the power to at least run it on medium settings. All the parts must be from www.tigerdirect.com as I'll be going to the store and buying them for him.

Thanks!

Ok, he's going to get that combo, tomorrow, any chance there's one that price or less at newegg just to see? He'll order the card the 20th of the month, but I'd like to know if theres a better combo deal for that exact price or less at newegg.

Oh 1 more thing, does that mobo serve well for overclocking in the future? Not too intense OC, just minor.
