Is this upgrade worth it...

My dad was looking to upgrade his computer. Lately he's been getting blue screens, which might or might not be associated with the parts. His graphics card's fan is making a lot of noise lately. All these problems don't help when my mother smokes in the house either.

He has some gigabyte motherboard with a q6600 in it and a 8600 gt and 2x2gb ddr2 memory.

Was thinking about going with a A10 5800k and a asrock fm2 motherboard atx form factor with 2x4gb ddr3 memory.

I figure he can use his old case, power supply and hard drive.

Looks good.

I just gave someone a 3870k build, it's butter smooth for what they do.
