You can change the GPU to an AMD 6850 which is cheaper and get a cheaper casing and psu. I don't think he needs the cooler since he won't be overclocking.

Granted, multi monitor resolutions would have likely seen the 3GB Lightning XE pulling off some impressive wins but we weren’t given a pair to play around with. Plus, spending $1200 or more on two of these cards is more than all but a few upper-crust enthusiasts are willing to spend

If you could read you would see that the reviewer did not evan have the cards. So ill say again get your facts straight.
