nowadays, CPU's don't make much of a difference in gaming. Running COD4 or Crysis on an X2 5000 vs. an E6750 or E8400 will be probably unnoticeable. at most, like 3-5 more fps. worth the extra $100-something? hell no
I'm assuming he already has the processor, or at least it was implied when he stated that he wanted the system to be built around that specific cpu...
like Joga said, check out the "New build Guide", your system should already be cheaper because you don't need the processor, just make sure all the other parts are compatible and you're set...
