Re: 1500 dollers top of the line gaming
For top of the line, I thought of an X2 dual core Athlon 64 4200+ (I believe it was),
and for the graphics card (I believe he has enough to spend, I tihnk, though working from poudns to Dollars may not be completly accurate), a ATI 1600 (top), or Nvidia 7900GTX.
I wouldn't know where to start with the motherboard mind.
