seems like an awesome mobo but a little exp for what he isplanning on doing with it. If it is just for surfing and WP then I would assume 1.5 to 2 gig of ram a sata 150 HD, asus mobo, and a athlon 3800 or higher woudl be more than adequate for what you are looking to do.

Is he going to be gaming? I asume he may be since you added a video card, if not, then on board video is good enough. Also 2gb of RAM is about the max right now. I tried putting 4gb in my pc also and it only reads 3gb. So just stick with some value ram that will be about 275 cheaper.

Somebody correct me if i'm wrong, but i dont think that video card is combatible with that motherboard. the video card would have to be PCI Express rather than AGP

you might need a power supply too.
