This rig Points towards the future..with 64-bit compatibly and LOTS of Room for Upgrade.
That 7950 is garbage. 512mb doesn't even begin to make any difference until you use resolutions like 1600x1200 and higher... "For future games???" DX10 is future... meaning 8 series cards, buy a 7900gs for $100 less, OC it and have nearly the same performance (if not better with a volt mod)
Buy a 7900gs, e6300, Gigabyte 965 S3 and some decent ram.. for less $$$ than what you have there.. and get BETTER performance... Tell your friend to join this forum so we can shut him up...
