I was asked to help put together a new PC for one of my friends. Here's what I was thinking. (Trying to do it on the cheep)
- Intel Core i7 920
- Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4
- G.SKILL 3x1GB DDR3 1333MhzCL9 (PC3-10666)
- Sapphire HD4870 512M GDDR5
He's not really in to overclocking so It will have stock cooling and cheaper ram. I was thinking a build like this would be good cuz all he needs to do down the track is double his ram when needed and eather upgrade or crossfire his GPU.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
