A friend of mine is looking to build and of course spend as little as possible on the build. I have donated my Core 2 Duo E8400 2x2Gbs of Ram, and Asus P5Q Deluxe to the cause. I am trying to pair a reasonable graphics card with this system. It will be likely running on a 1080p monitor. I was thinking maybee a GTX 650 1GB, or my wife has a GTX 460 768MB, I could always upgrade hers and donate the 460(for 50 bucks) to the cause. One thing to note, I have in the past overclocked the crap out of this system, running 3.8/4.0 ghz. I think it would be able to run something like a 3.6 ghz 24/7 despite being...4 years old. I am just cautious about suggesting a card that would completely bottle neck the CPU, and match his budget. Maybe even a 7670 AMD?
