uhh, i wouldnt power that kind of system with only a $50 PSU.. trust me dont skimp on a PSU, cuz you will be putting the life of the computer itself on the line..

heres kinda the cheapest i would go.
Cooler Master for $70 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817171016

really dont go with a PSU under $50 for any computer more then a common business/internet computer

No, once DX10 games become mainstream then yes but for the moment the X1950XT should serve him great.
