Yes i would say you would. and if he is ogna be gaming a lot i would get a X38 or X48 board beucase if he gets intp he may wnat ot do crossfire so that a option too. and X38 and X48 boards have 2 Pci X16 2.0 slots so that all good. id get a DFi X38 or X48. and yes hte E8400 is a must have for gaming. Quad cores are meant mainly for multitasking. and get alike 600w psu from Thermaltake or something.

You'll also get money back in rebates.

If you need a CPU cooler, just use the 7200.10 250GB Version, its slower, but it'll work.

Also, if modular isn't a big deal, you can get other stuff with more wattage for the same price.

6600 isn't as good as 8400 for gaming.
Cooler Master Elite is a bit cheap, but will work.
Skimping on the PSU.

+/- 2% in games is negligible compared to the benefit of a quad.
Cooler Master Elite IS CHEAP,,, but its also for his brother.
PSU is enough for a single GPU.
