More about friend budget gaming comp
  1. overall it looks good, for budget systems the antec sonata II case is almost always on sale on new egg and is a great value, and comes with an antec PSU so you know it's good.

    There is a 7900gs on sale @ best buy for $150, much better than this 1650pro

    Also I recommend not building for your friend, unless you want to be a 24/7 tech support for him and be blamed if anything goes wrong after u built it..
  3. he's a comp n00b, but he wants 2 build himself (he's gonna fry his parts, i can tell)

    he does, howeve,r want 2 me 2 put a list 2gether 4 him

    he's buying on black fri
