With what he wanted and with that board you could have saved him a couple hundred by pairing it up with a cheap HD 4xxx card for two of the monitors, and used the onboard video for the other two monitors.

Maybe, but a dedicated card would probably give better performance. That board probably has onboard video, the HD 4200.

Indeed I told him about cutting costs but he wanted all dvi connections and something that would be newer and more powerful. Despite him wanting it for trading stocks and the such, he also uses it for muti media and such. Along with me telling him he didn't need all this power he insisted on having something and this was the best. Heck I could have got him a $30 case but he likes to it to be slightly over the top . The most gaming he does is Chess so its overkill for that. He is happy about it and this setup will power him for a long long time also unless it dies suddenly. He is running all these at 1920 x 1080 (4) so the cards do help out in my thought.

This actually depends on.....

@JordanJP

It would all depend on the laws governing electronics in your own country. I can tell you that if you were to buy a desktop, laptop camera etc in the UK, and then 9 months down the line your motherboard or video-card was to burn out they have to replace it free of charge. But, what they don't tell you is that you new product that has been installed is legally covered again for 12 months from the day you have received you PC back.
Hope this helps.
