I'm looking to help a friend who want's a semi budget gaming system. He needs good parts but needs them to be within budget. I want to get some advice for them as I can pretty much build anything so heres what he need it for.

Diablo 3
Battlefield 3
League of legends

and more future games over the next year to year and a half. Battlefield 3 is the most important but it doesnt need to be maxed out just run smoothly and run at at least high. The budget $1,000 - 1,300. He will need a monitor if it is possible to fit into that budget. but there is also a possibility we might not need it in that budget and buy one later.

He wont prefer any parts or anything so just go ahead with what u think is good.

please use this site for the parts first or (if you see a good computer pre-built on futureshop, bestbuy or staple Canadian sites thats ok to._

Sometimes our links are just messed up for no reason... you can cut and paste those URLs as needed.

+1 @Proximon's build. I personally would not buy a Coolermaster case, but that's just me; a lot of people like them.

I think theres a typo on Proximon's build?


Shouldn't that be either:

I like many of them. I don't like the styling of the HAFs and would never own one, but many do like them. I've used many Elite and Gladiator cases in builds, and we have a 690 in the house somewhere.

Thanks for the help guys I'll most likely be going with proximon build and see how that goes from there.
