Disagree. I like it, he can always get a better CPU later but the 7800GT will last a long time.
The argument goes both ways, but he'd get more immediate performance gains from a CPU faster than a 3000, than blowing his wad on a 7800. Looking at a bang-for-the-buck standpoint, it's a waste. It's like he went too low on the CPU and too high on the vid. Get a vanilla 6800 and a 3500+ and call it good, IMO.
