yes it would be a fairly good computer that will last him a few years and allow him to play the top games too.
He just needs to make sure the CPU matches the mobo
cpu socket. AS he didn't give the model number for the mobo...just make sure it is a socket 939.

If your friend would like to upgrade in the future I would suggest going with the Socket 939 mobo and processor. It may be a little more expensive, but it's worth it.

He's not saying that the socket type affects the speed. He's saying that most upgrades are going to require a 939 socket, and if he uses a 754, he can pretty much give up on any upgrades he might want for the computer in the future, as nothing is gonna support the 754.

That's a damn good machine, I wouldn't say no to that.

But I would suggest he gets the 6800GT instead of the 6600GT if he can afford it. The prices should begin to drop after the 7800 becomes more and more available.
