Keep in mind, not everybody ONLY games on their machines. He could very easily put all 6 cores to full use, we don't know.
Thread cleaned, now stay on topic.
Doh this came after I posted... Just trying to show that it's in the budget.
This 6850 would give you room in the budget for a better psu.
This antec earthwatts 650 fits now
Or ocz modxtreme pro 500w if modularity matters.
Cx600 would work for 5$ less also.
And crossfire will be a possibility.
Considering the many limitations, there aren't many other options.
Oh different board 890gx instead of 970 chipset for 5$ savings: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004YAPV3I/ref=mp_s_a_2?qid=1318324443&sr=1-2
No dvd drive saves you 21$ or this one saves 0.50 cents. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0029RUBNS/ref=mp_s_a_2?qid=1318325078&sr=1-2
