Ok so I'm building a PC for my friend, and I've gone over this a few times in the cart. He needs it to be EXACTLY $400 (including shipping)

This is what I've got.

Processor + Psu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
MotherBoard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HardDrive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
DVD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
WireLess card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Video card: 9400 GT free from me.

Now I realize the case is way high of price for such a small budget but he really REALLY wanted this case. He's going to be getting about $150 in a week and planning to buy 2GB more of ram and a 4850. My only concern is the motherboard, it's kind of Low-end. I was going to go with the Gigabyte 770 USB 3.0 + Sata 6GB's but it threw the price over.

Decent looking case...

If your friend likes it, that is all that matters though

I dont think the motherboard will be that bad. I think they only dissapointment would be the (albeit free) video card
