Hello all, im building a 1000$ build for a friend, and it is for gaming. i dont really have many market preferences, but id prefer amd, and i hate seagate. it needs everything besides a monitor, cpu fan, and dvd burner. heres what i have, feel free to criticize, adjust, applaud or recommend anything:
with adding in the 5870, and keeping everything else the same, it comes to 1100$. he really doesnt need the 5870, i was going to oc the 5850 for him, so i think he should be fine with the 5850, but if a 5870 can be fit in there for a bit more, then thats good.
i used a different mobo, im doing the overclocking, so i get to choose my mobo i know the 790x is fine, ive used it before, i liked it, its the best buy as far a 7xx boards, but i gotta go with my msi 890fx
