Windows 7: Building a machine for my family, looking for advice or ideas.

Side post....

but for the next 4 years my brother wants to play his games. trying to find the best mix of both worlds.
Then you should plan for the next 4 years. Games get better and better every year. You or he will probably want to upgrade the Graphics card at least twice over the next 4 years. Start with the best you can afford now. This includes needing to plan for PSU wattage over that time frame. 550W won't be enough.
