This is like reading a foreign language haha.
Are these parts that I could buy one at a time and still play?

That APU is 100W. I would maybe go a little more in case he ever wants to truly crossfire or something but I over did it on my PSU because of the "just in case" factor.


Also, I think this works on that new FM2 socket and is fairly cheap right now. Though I am not sure of those case measurements. It's a large cooler.

No, order all at once.

Not really. You need the CPU and Mobo at the same time and that CPU isn't going to run to it's full advantage without the memory.

He can easily use another 7750 with 500w. The 7750 is one of the least power consumption cards that is still available. He would only run about 400w max with two cards(thats VERY high, more like 300-350).

And on his budget he doesn't need an aftermarket cooler. It's unlikely that he'll be overclocking, so he doesn't need to put in another cooler if he wants to save the money

The standard coolers are shite. If he doesn't want that one then at least get a cooler master for $30. It's worth that little bit of money IMO. AMD runs very hot especially at 100W

As hog said, I put a new case in my markup at the top of the page.

Here is a better markup LINK

Edit: I would go ahead and spend $5 to get the AMD a10 from newegg

The mother board and power supply both have the connections you need for that.
