Ok, a 500w PSU is WAAAAY more than what you need for that. Also, 256 should do it for your brother. And, a 9700 Pro? Dude, what the hell is this kid doing on the computer? If he's using it for things like surfing the web, talking to friends, or drawing, then you're spending waaay too much. And you may as well save yourself some money and buy a

1700+ and OC it to 2500+.

2000+ will do it

Get a MOBO w/ Built in everything.... that will work find for him

350watts sounds good on the PSU

512 ram is fine, but dont bother with dual channel, go single if its cheaper

You dont need aftermarket HSF if your not gonna oc it (i doubt youe 8yr old bro will)

 

 

If your in cali

FRY's has awesome mb/cpu combos... friday was a 3.2ghz p4/ with mb for 200

200usd is right, do too ebay don't worry only new sealed parts here my little is an even more massive gamer than me that why the extra power the case is already modded black gold and red with uv internal and it went down to 9600pro it was cheaper were talking about an 8yr old who likes linux and can hack :) so while the psu may seem overkill it is to power the 5-6 system fans as for the after market cooler I plan to oc the machine for him not far no agp pci lock on this board
