And will the PSU be suffice? My co-worker says it might be too small, but he isnt sure and imi not 100% how to verify either.

i bet on hdd... not a good choice to store on ssd.. maybe just a couple heavy ones for faster startup but still, not a great idea (unless you have a 123124154534TB ssd lol)

Drop the RAM to DDR3 1600 8Gb

Better to drop the SSD being that its only 64GB and opt for a GTX 660 Ti.

If you're gaming, get the GTX 660. The 650 has only 384 cores vs. the 660's 960 core count. The 650ti (768 core) is also worth looking at priced around 150 USD.

About the SSD... 2 years ago, 64 gig would have been great. 128 gig drives are too cheap to pass up these days.

Same thing i was thinking :laugh:

who in their right mind would recommend not upgrading to an SSD

yes, is on the small side, but even then, is more than enough for the OS

Don't drop the SSD

More GPU or have a small 64GB SSD thats going to be used as a gaming PC?

You can always get a SSD later if you partition the 2TB HDD with 128GB partition OS then you just copy that to an SSD later.

I usually would say no but he sure will be better served by a 660 (or at the minimum a 650ti) than a ssd. The 650 non ti is mostly a htpc card, for gaming it is not great. Even the 650ti is nothing special an old 560 or 6950 is actually as good.
