Nice. What RAM you going with? Same stuff you have?

Also, I'd go with a nice big heatsink/fan instead of the hydro. But it will perform well.

Yea it'll be fine.

Let us know how you like the X6. That motherboard looks like a beast too.

Strange build IMO. Super expensive board/case/cpu cooler and then a midrange chip and gfx card. Will still be awesome no doubt though.

Maybe a little, but not too bad. GTX 460 is plenty for today's games (especially at 1680x1050) and after OC'ing the X6, he should be able to get some great performance out of it.

Yup, i saved money on the CPU since i'm going for minimum 3.7 ghz on it. I saved on the GFX card since i only have a 22" TFT And then there are som money for the next gen cards

I went all in on the case since it have SATA hot swap and really nice cable management.
