Yeah, I think you can go cheaper with the RAM dimms, you're not trying to break any benchmark records as far as I see.

any 1333/1600Mhz of 8Gb RAM would do. (make sure to pick a good brand though)

Everything else looks fine, also I hope you're aiming on SLI in the near future with that MOBO

Not really looking at SLI. Any better suggestions

I looked up MSI PC and didn't find anything helpful

Find cheaper RAM lol, that's stupidly expensive.

Looks good man. The only thing I would change would be an I-7 processor and a 10,000 RPM HDD or an SSD and of course Windows 7.

Maybe someone that is more tech savvy can clarify, but I'm under the impression that games going forward will be utilizing 4+ cores. Couldn't he purchase a AMD cpu with more than 4 cores and it would be cheaper? Or does hyper threading really make that much of a difference?

I'd say go for cheaper ram spend around $100 on it and spend the extra $100 on an i7 instead of an i5. Some say it doesn't matter but it's better safer then sorry when new games a recommend an i7 as the go to Intel processor.
