Default Best Friends Build

Hey Guys, here's the PC I'm going to build for my Friend. He's starting to realize that console gaming is pointless

CPU-AMD FX-8120 $112.49

GPU-Gigabyte GTX650 Ti OC $150

MOBO-ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 $64.99

RAM-Kingston Technology 8GB $64.99

PSU-Corsair CX 600 Watt Bronze $40.00

HD-Western Digital 1TB HD 7200 RPM $42.99

Total: $475.46

Mind you, this will run Crysis 3 on High

Give me any thoughts on anything. Thanks!

Problem with the 480 is power to watt ratio and heat. the price tp performance ratio is low aswell.
Even though it is better then the 650, I'll rather buy a modern Kepler GPU.

Now this is a general question, but I'm thinking of buying a New GPU as well, and I've been looking at, per say, a 560 TI on Ebay, and I could get one for $90 used, would that be worth it, or do I have to buy it new for it to work?

Fair enough And, I'm wondering, is it worth for me to get the Core 2 Quad Q9550 or the Q6600?
