Used cards, I only buy them if they have some warranty left, or cheap (like under $150).

it is no ones fault but the buyers own if they get scammed. Ebay has more than enough security to gaurantee youll recieve your item or your money back.

just make sure you have paypal and don't ever pay cash locally with someone in person.

Just a thought

The PSU IS DEFINITELY WAY MORE than needed for this setup but allows him the option for the future when he wants a stronger GPU

My dad works at a college, so he gets Windows 7 disks whenever he wants. They're free (not stolen/pirated) from the IT center, so I don't need to pay for the OS.
