yea hes gonna want the 6600GT. i saw a good Althon 64 for 160 so i think i might have him get that (he doesnt kno much about computers so i'm pickin out most of the parts and stuff)
i still need to pick out a motherboard, ram, dvd drive, hard drive (thinking about SATA but idk much about those), video card and acessories (which we can get later). suggestions would help alot. I've only worked with ASRock motherboards and loved them but would like to try some other companies.
