go with the intel cpu/mobo and use your 9600. The performance you get at the resolution your 19in monitor will run wont see a huge jump with a 260gtx or a 4870, so save your money.

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341010 OCZ GameXStream 600w $75 - $30 rebate
Graphics http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121272 4850 $150 - $30 rebate

Total = $474 before rebates. $414 after rebates.

I see another 4850 in your future

With this, you have a CF prepared mobo, sleeved PSU cables, enough wattage to run 2 4850's. That board is an AMAZING overclocker.

The 4870 is imo, overall better than the GTX260. The GTX280 is overall better than the 4870 imo.

Crossfire 4850's would beat all of them I think.

The GTX260 is a lot better than the HD4850. The HD4870 is also a lot better than the HD4850. The HD4850 can be called a mid-range card whereas the GTX260 and HD4970 would be High-End.

if the discount on the HD4870 ends.

Personally i would go with the GTX260 but they are similiar in terms of performance.

Why is the GTX260 unreasonable? Its within the budget and it has no MIRs
The P45 gigabyte has CF but it would limit the cards cause CF would run at x16x8 not x16x16. Try to get him a X38 at least.

btw sell the 9600GT for some money and get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817702010 to be on the safe side as 500w is the minimum for the GTX260 and HD4870.
