I need help with parts for a new computer. Before now, I was extremely against building my own computer, but I now have a friend willing to help me build it. Plus, I hear it's more efficient in many ways. So, let's begin. I would like to build a computer that is as good as it can be. My price range is 600-800$. Specifically I really want to play some higher end games with friends that I am unable to right now. Thanks for any help!

Quick edit: I would need a monitor and an os, but you don't have to count that as part of the price. I'd also like to remind you that I need something that will be most efficient for the price. What I need is parts that are good so that I can upgrade them over time, but won't need any serious upgrades right away. Thanks for all the answers so far

dis kid is improving.
but still 660 beats me..760 is ok i guess...and, now in near future when a DX upgrade comes up den a 600 edition will be obsolete.


If i put that in this build then it pushes $1k... and he has a budget. I like the 660 - 760. If he upped his budget then we could really talk CPU's and GPU's but the lower end systems are not my forte.

Doesn't change the fact that the 760 is stronger and cheaper. Also, he could use those savings to get a 4430 with a B85 MOBO.
