  1. You are gonna have to specify what you want do you mean what is the best processor to match that card?
  2. I think he wants for us to make a PC from parts for him that we think it will use the most of it and include the GTX260.

    I think..:)). Also that means you can not afford expensive parts if you go for a gtx260.
    So the best way would be to use an amd platform:


    CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103808

    Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131392 -i chose this one because it is a good board and you can overclock the life out of your CPU with it:).

    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227478 -the bestr value at ram is at 1333MHz and these ones have a low latency and the voltage is ok too.

    VIDEO: probably you already have the card but i will recommend one anyway(gtx260) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130433

    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139012 -this is ok but if you want to switch to 2 cards in the future (the motherboard only suppports crossfire so you will have to buy from ATi, anyway the gtx260 is a dead card) you need : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139011

    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129058 -this is a good case.

    HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136284 -a 1 Tb HDD should be ok:).
    For DVD you can buy an asus one or any other brand you like( i own asus for a few years now and it never failed).

    A good CPu cooler for am3 i do not know so i hope others will recommend:).
  3. Well whatever they want they will have will have to put down a few sentences on their wants, needs, and budget.
  4. ^you are right!

    Yep. does us no good to recommend parts without knowing what there going to use it for and there budget.

    I wouldn't want to recommend two HD 5970 in cf and core i7 980x when there only going to use it for web browsing and only have $1k budget.
