    6850 > 460

    Might as well go with a better CPU for the little price increase, unlocked multi and shit ftw.

    Fuck 1333MHz CL9 ram. If the latencies are bad it could at least be fast or vice versa.

    But these are the cheapest you can get for decent gaming. ATi sucks anyways.

    The 6850 is about as much as a 460 but has way more performance once unlocked. If you're looking for a budget gamer CPU you don't even need something good, you can go cheaper but you can't save money on RAM, especially not by getting something that crappy

    Define: unlocking motherboard. If you were doing hard mods with your severely lacking knowledge ... no wonder you screwed up. Even I am iffy about hard modding my new PCs

    What did you do? Stick a screwdriver into a slot and twist it around?

    Not worth it, especially for a gamer build.

    Oversized for a normal ATX build. He's better off with something half the price and decent air flow.
