A friend of mine asked me to build him a computer for around 1200 pre-tax. He wanted to go with intel and his primary purpose is gaming.. WoW, Rift, LoL, SC2. Otherwise al he really does is use fb and email.. Anyway this is what I came up with and I would like to know what the community thinks.
This price reflects only 1 560 ti, he wants to purchase a 2nd one within a month so if someone can make sure everything would be good to go with x2 560 Ti cards.
Corsair vs G.Skill...six one way, a half dozen the other. Save some $ and get a better psu out of the deal. Now if you click "Combo's" on that 2500K it also combo's with a super o/c EVGA 560ti. I linked this one from another build I posted, but if he wants EVGA then combo it with the cpu to save a few bucks.
