Ok, so since I got my new computer my wife has been nagging me on getting her one. My budget for her is $1500. She enjoys playing sims, spore, you know, those kiddy womanly games, ect... So here's the build, please let me know if I'm aiming too high for the stuff she does with a comp.
Well my wifes a gamer, but she doesn't use the HD4870x2 which is serious overkill for that system. Scale it back to a reasonable aftermarket cooling HD4850. Get a bigger hard drive, no reason to skimp on that.
