My main concern is the gpu, do you think i should get a better gpu at the risk of a worser psu?
How would that be pushing it? The PSU is $70, just like the one you posted.
If your friend only wants to run one GPU, a smaller PSU can be had, but you're not gonna save all that much. Basically, look at it like this: get something like the Radeon HD 5830+Antec NEO ECO 620C for $180, and have the ability to get another Radeon HD 5830 used later on for more performance. OR, you can get something like an Antec EA-380D and save $30 there and get a GeForce GTX 460 768MB and enjoy 10% more performance. Your pick, but two Radeon HD 5830s down the road sounds much better, and you get a much better PSU.
