This processor will pack more of a punch than that dual core processor.

Generally four cores are the standard for gaming and should be able to play all games.

Also replace that power supply with this:

and replace the 6670 for this:

Here is a link to a build that is within $500
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qsZ6

Let me know if you are overclocking, if not I can cut down the price by going for another motherboard and dropping the aftermarket cooler.

*on a side note, anyone know how to do that price breakdown thing and post it on the forum? Still don't know how to do that, I only post the link :lol:

I asked my friend, he said that he won't, but does that mean he doesn't need the cooler and the PC will do fine (wont overheat) without it?

The stock cooler was designed for stock clocks. That being said it will work absolutely fine. However if his home gets very hot and if he does not like a loud cpu fan then consider getting the Hyper TX-3. If memory serves me well the stock amd cooler sounds like a jet engine when stressed out and near to overheating.

Give this build a look:

Let me know if that's good enough...

It looks good, do you know where we could buy Windows 7 for it though?

Thanks for all your help!
