Do you really use the media reader?

Add those in and your set, that nice i7 build will last you a while. The case and monitor you chose are good as well.

For the games he plays I think a 260 would be plenty if he's already stretching his budget. If not maybe a 275

Well he said he wants to get into some newer next gen games so the 285 will really help with that especially since he has a 24" monitor and he wants this to last as long as possible too.

Yeah this is true, i'd say a 275 would still be more than enough. I max out empire total war with my 4850, despite it being designed for nvidia and not supporting some features with ati cards. Game is beautiful though. Other than crysis (who plays that anyways) I'm sure he could max everything out. Crysis warhead I'm sure too

Yeah, a gtx275 would be good too, but since it just fits into his budget i say get the gtx285.

Well it's done! i got all the parts and, I'm working off of it right now. Everything showed up it good working condition. Except the monitor, it arrived with 3 stuck pixels. I tried all the "Pixel Fix" programs and, methods but, they kept coming back. So newegg let me exchange it for a new one, should be here in a few days.

But other than that, the build is massive! all the game's i got run so smooth

I'll get some pictures and screenshots up tonight
