Looks like he is getting the AMD 5600x2 and corsair xms2 4gb kit combo deal for $109 build looks good depending on your budget but i would up a little and go for the 4870 since there about $200 now or go for the Evga GTX260 216 version.

Yeah no ram no CPU. Why not go with a P35 board and the E5200/E7200.

Even for an AM2+ board you can do much better then that older model Asus.

i dont see a combo deal and looks like he is on a budget so another $50 might be too much.
