  1. no hard drive shown in the list, no GPU, nor an OS

    edit: and you have a non-"k" CPU with a Z87 motherboard, if not overclocking (or planning to SLI/Crossfire) Z87 is not necessary
  2. Is your friend overclocking?
    Does he/she already have an internal HDD?
  3. he won't overclock. and he has a hybrid hdd
  4. Best answer
    If your friend isn't OCing, get an H77 motherboard, and you can probably lower the power supply to a quality 500-550w, if there are no plans to SLI in the future.

    Possible consideration of a mobo:

  5. ok about the motherboard. but are you sure about the psu??
  6. As long as it is a quality psu by XFX/Corsair/Antec/Seasonic/(other top tier psu makers), 500-550w would be plenty and still have room for some minor upgrades in the future.
