I forgot to add a video card in there, so I have to change some stuff to make it affordable for the 955 and mobo.

ATI FireGL seems to be really good for workstations.

So he can't get a decent one to get by for now? Better parts means faster rendering right?

Here's an epic deal. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ATI-_-14195061

It'd be good for a while, but yeah he probably will need to upgrade eventually.

EDIT: 79 is sold out. Here's a good deal if 790GX is OK. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131366R

If not: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813130223R
