If you plan to convert multiple files at a time, you might want to have more separate hard drives for each conversion your doing... since having only 1 HDD will most likely bottleneck the system if multiple files are being converted at once.

what operating system will you be using? You will want an aftermarket cooler if you plan to OC in the future.

unless he has a very large display, its fine. theres no mention of gaming in his activities, so a lot of money in this component would be wasted.

i dont understand your text.

unless the OP revises his uses to wanting crysis to run on super extreme settings at 120fps, this card will be fine.
