My friend is building a new rig. He told me his part list, and to be honest it was pretty terrible. I talked him out of most of it, (Lol, i7-950 etc), and he asked me what I would put in my build. I'm asking you guys what you would put in the build.
Budget: About 1300$.
Uses: He needs it for School, and he games. He plays Microsoft Flight simulator a lot, And he also plays other games like MW2, BC2, and Crysis.
Additional Information: He's using
some shitty Hp, with a crappy 17" monitor, so no useable parts. I have a spare DVD RW I can give him. Don't include that. He prefers Nvidia GPUs, and he says that "X58 is a must" . We live near a micro-center. He wants a HAF-932 case. The 1300$ budget is loose, you can go anywhere from 800$-1300$ if you feel there is limited gain by spending more. He wanted the new "H-70", I had an h 50, tried to talk him out of it..... Pick a good air cooler plox. He wants to hit 4.2ghz+ with a 930, so a good oc mobo (Asus x58 extreme as rock?) is a must. A cheap ssd would also be good. (H e wanted a raptor, i tried to talk him out of it)
