Hey, I've made a few threads now over the past few months and still undecided. The PC is being bought for my little brother for Christmas and he hasn't really had anything this powerful before. We are thinking of going with a system from NCIX.com. What do you guys think of this build?

Thing is, is that quad core and a bigger screen are questionable. He is more likely not going to get a new PC some time down the road or upgrade the videocard, so I was thinking a smaller screen would work best. Not only that, would going Quad Core be benefital in the long run? Right now the E8400 surpases the Q6600 by a long shot in FPS in games..... btw, no overclocking.
