I don't know whether they have finally got their act together with regard to drivers and redesigning their hardware but I would suggest caution as last I heard their drivers were really buggy and unstable.
    what are the m audio cards like in comparison - or will they still have the same issue due to vista and the whole driver mess ?

    Only problem may be if the PSU is cheap in the case (for £25 this is likely) it may cause problems down the line with the demand especially with that beast of a CPU, the memory and the GFX Card.
    That case is really poor and the 500w psu is purely jackanory. If he does want to skrimp on the case/psu at least get a decent psu and have a shoddy case, how about this Coolermaster RC-590 Midi Tower Case with Cmaster eXtreme 500W PSU Fitted - Scan.co.uk
