Looks good here too. Waste of money going with AMD, but I suppose it lets you splurge on other parts.

Why not skimp a little on the harddrive and maybe you could throw that money in somewhere else. From what I've read and seen the difference between 7,200 rpm and 10,000 isn't that different, though I could be wrong, plus you could get him a bigger one as well.

Just my $0.02

There's plenty of difference with a faster Hard Drive. You just notice it in some apps more than others. A faster Hard Drive wont help you in something that doesn't use it in the first place.
