This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.
Looks good, it won't max out everything 1080p 60fps but you can play all games.Heck my PC doesn't even max out Crysis 3.
After having used an SSD for a few months I'd say keep it and just upgrade the gpu later when it's not getting the settings he wants.
You could knock down the PSU and get a 7970 or something instead for more GPU power.
Assuming a $1000 budget, I swapped some stuff to fit in a 7970.http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1wjNn
Will he be able to overclock with that PSU?
