He would need a better cpu, ram, motherboard, and PSU to use the R9 290 4GB none x version. From a GTX 460 to a R9 290 is a massive upgrade for sure.

I saw $900 before CAD and thought that seems a bit high for a Pentium rig.  Honestly if you were to rebuild I would look more towards Ryzen since some of their 4 core variants are dirt cheap for the amount of performance they offer.  You're kind of limited with the 1st gen 1156 socket and like you already pointed out, it also only has USB 2.0, Sata II and PCIe 2.0, no M.2 for NVMe drives, no Sata III, USB 3.0 let alone 3.1... You're at a point where I would either stretch it out until Intel's response to Ryzen or just go with Ryzen for the price/performance.

Or what he could do is add more memory, and buy my video card.
