    So my friend was building a PC. Turns out he mixed an intel mobo with an AMD cpu. He registered now. [​IMG] Silly stragon.

    He'll either need an other motherboard or CPU, Intel mobo's don't support AMD processors.
    Here's a motherboard, or a CPU for the correct socket.

    The Asus M5A88-V EVO Motherboard says it's "AMD3+ Ready", so I'd assume that means it's fine for a PhenomII X6 1090T.

    I've never heard of CiT before, so I would avoid that PSU. It's best to get a Corsair, Antec, Tagan or Enermax PSU.

    The case looks fugleh, but that's just my opinion.

    Other than that, it looks fine for a casual-moderate gamer on screen sizes up to 22". I assume you've already got a monitor, keyboard and mouse to use.
    EDIT: Switching to a MSI P67A-GD53 motherboard and a Core i5-2500K should only cost around £20 more, and you'll get much more power out of it (for gaming that is).
