Hmm, I must have grabbed the wrong picture. It was originally 4 gigabytes.
He's not looking for any High-End gaming, but would like to be able to play games smoothly (and has never had a computer with any modern-era stats.)
Games he plays include Eve, Payday: The Heist, etc... Stuff like this a computer (he has a decent gpu) should be able to crush.
Even with a core 2 duo + GeForce 8600gt I am able to play BF3 on high with 40+ fps, no oc'd.
What I'm really looking for is if any of you have any other part suggestions that are comparable in price.
