Helping my cousin choose some parts since his mobo fried and he just wants a better machine.

ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

XFX Core Edition FX-785A-CNJC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M700 RS-700-AMBA-D3 700W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4100WMGUSBX

His was a prebuilt HP pavillion so I told him we better add in a power supply too. His budget is $500 for those 4 things and he needs to get someone to build it for him so I'm allocating another $50 to that. Those 4 things come to $410 including rebates shipping etc. And he also gets FC3 for free.

Can you guys just confirm please if those will work together? He wants to play LoL maxed which I said he should be able to, and also things like AC3, MaxPayne 3, FC3 etc on medium. Oh, and his monitor is 1650 x whatever so a lower resolution. These parts in my opinion should even allow him to run all those maxed at that resolution. Correct me if I'm wrong.

is the price point ok too? basically trying to get him lowest price machine that will run things med-high at 1650 x 1050 for under $500. assuming its $50 for someone to assemble then it comes to $460 after shipping and rebates.

That's about as good as you'll get for that price

I thought so too. He was using a celeron and 9800 before this. so itll be a huge upgrade.

Why does he need a 700W PSU? Drop it down to 500W that will be enough.

it doesnt but it comes as a combo at $80 and if he wants to g et a better system later on this psu will still be enough
