    The build is good however I'd recommend a 2x4 Ram for the Memory and aswell as the Motherboard ( Not MSI ) as MSI is a hit or miss some times , for the extra 20 Bucks he might get something much better

    I thought I put 2x4. Oops. In any case, I would also recommend 2x4 over 1x8.

    I'm not too motherboard savvy, so I just went with a cheap but highly rated one on pcpartpicker to get close to his budget. Thanks for the feedback!
  4. i really know how to put together a pc... are there any that are already built?

    I'm pretty sure you meant you don't know how to build one, but I assure you it is pretty easy to learn through youtube and internet tutorials. Buying prebuilt computers will waste your money and, in the long run, is not worth it.

  7. Hey..
    The build suggested by Byte70 is great. The pc-gpu combo is awesome considering your budget. Though you may want to take a look at a better memory stick like the Corsair Vengeance or G.Skills Ripjaw series. And the issue with the motherboard is also pointed out. Take a look at Asus or Gigabyte boards. And finally just as a precautionary step, try and get a higher wattage PSU. Corsair is great, but try and go for the 600W or 650W.
    If you get really tight with your budget and wanna future proof it, maybe you can try AMD rig. Depends on what is your requirment though for gaming Intel rigs are usually better.
    Cheers mate.
  8. Thank you all for the answers it helped a lot and I think I'm going to try to build my own PC, i may need some help along the way but this was very helpful
  9. I'd rather have two 4 GB RAM modules instead of the one 8 GB module, in order to get dual channel memory access. Also, if you're going with AMD, you would be better off spending another $25 and going with an FX-6300.
