It will get about 10k in 3dmark06 and will destroy your current pc!

could use the rest for a better PSU. The case comes with one that should work fine however!
You think the Allendale will out-perform the Brisbane?

HD3870 is plenty for what he needs. I however dont know much about ATI so i didnt know that one is better.

My nephew has an HD3870 and he loves it. I ordered him a new board for crossfire and another card

I actually considered getting the E2180 and vamping it up to 3.0ghz.

If you check out our for sale thread here on overclock.net you can usualy get an E2180 for around $50.00 or so maybe less. Go check out the For sale section and see if you can find a cpu or have someone hold one for you until you can buy it. the E2180s are great. Newegg is no longer selling them from what i see. So good luck on your new build

Nah, I don't see why they should all have to be new -- open box items are fine as long as I can get the drivers online. New is preferable though.

Look through the fs section and find yourself a processor. Once you find one that is in your price range, you can pick out a mobo and other parts. There are always some great deals in that section.

it wont on that junk board.
the simple fact is that it's going to be much easier to find a decent quality amd mobo in this guy's price range than an intel one.

i'd get at least a decent board, so that the next time he sells something for 300 he just has to upgrade, and not buy a whole new system.

OP:
here is a system that has the option of expansion in the future as well as good performance now:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103228
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003
after the rebates, it's under 300 bucks.

later, you can upgrade to a 45nm amd processor, run RAID 0, add more ram, and/or a better video card instead of being limited to just what you have now.

dont trust rebates sometimes it takes forever or doesnt come back at all

i suggest for the GPU the ati 4670, lesser on the power and also cheaper by 10$ and better

dont also go for ECS mobo if you can afford get an MSI one
