I would prefer a 5850 with dx11 for a gpu. Or to save some cash you could go for a 5770 which does not perform as well as the 4890 but is dx11.

What psu will they be using? mb info would be nice as well.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

Does that include an OS? If not, it seems a bit pricey.
