Great. And since we know the graphics card to use can you give me a link to the drivers page for that card so I can be prepared in that sense in already having the page when I go to update it for the first time? And so I update it to the latest version. And every month I'll have to uninstall the old driver, go into safe mode, run driver sweeper, and install the next driver in windows correct?

Like I said he didn't know not to update a driver on top of another. So instead of him putting in the driver from the box like he started out with this one, what should I tell him? I know you have to do something before installing a driver. I don't know what he's suppoed to do, but I'm guessing you put the card in, go through the plug and play process and then put in a driver. Is that right? I';m just trying to figure out what to tell him because I don't want him to put something in that he shouldn't if he's suppoed to get the latest update.

You know so I can let him know do this and don't put in this. To modify the process as he installs things. I just want to be able to know what to tell him.

I also have the new revised list of the suggested specs for the new computer from Obsiden. Thta thread I gave a link to. Both you and them agree on at least some of the specs such as the procesor and video card. And since some of the specs you don't have, and some specs they don't have, but together both have specs for at least something I thought I'd post what they have in case it might help:

Monitor: SVA 2400w 24" 1920x1200 LCD
Power Supply: ENERMAX MODU82+ EMD525AWT 525W ATX12V Ver.2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE
Processor: Intel Core Duo E 8400(or something in the 8
series)
Motherboard: eVGA LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI
RAM: 2x2 GB Corsair 800MHz
Graphics Card: NVIDA eVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition 896MB DDR3
Hard Drive: Spinpoint F1 1TB (1000 GB)
Drives: Samsung DVD/CD Drive and Flash Drive
Case: Antec Sonata III
O/S: Windows XP Pro (32 Bit)


They believe the eVGA brand of the NVIDA card is the best brand, but I thought I'd give you links to the other brands too just to get your opinion in case that might help as well.

Gigabyte: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125241
XFX: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150329

Remaining specs links:

Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152102
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145184

I also thought I'd add in there are really cheap Flash Drives now. This one is a 32GB one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820134801

I hope this helps both builds to come up with one better one.
