Either get the 8320 or 6300 in a combo deal with the 970A-G46 or the 6300 with the GA-78LMT-USB3.

57r4dNEVER buy anything from Diablotek, they make terrible components and their power supplies will explode. You do know that the case comes with a power supply, and you have another on your list? I also wouldn't go for a 720p monitor... those are pretty old and you won't get full use of your components, you'd be better going with a 1080p.[/i]


Its 18.5 inchs he wont notice the difference between 720 and 1080

This build is a small bit more, but you get much better components.
