My friend is planing to buy an entire new machine within the range of $800. He is into 3d and compositing field at the student level + also a casual gamer.

And he was planing on getting a pure AMD system (the new fx-series cpu and ATI hd 6-series gpu). I know since he into graphics field he should be going for fire-pro

but den games will be impossible.

So, it wud be really helpfull if u helps us rig a perfect system within dat price range including psu, ram and mobo within dat range. Coz i dont want him to bottleneck

or slow his pc due to imperfect system rig, as i have made those mistakes earlier.

Below is about as close to $800 as you will get. IMHO you should be looking at an Intel build over the AMD build... Add about $100 to opt up to a Z68 motherboard, 2500k and aftermarket CPU cooler (overclocking ability).

MB - ASRock H67M (B3) - $80
CPU - i5-2400 - $190
GPU - ASUS GTX 560 - $180 after MIR
MEM - Corsair XMS3 8GB DDR3-1600 CL9 - $40 after MIR
HD - Seagate 1TB - $135
OPTICAL - LG Black 12X BD-RW - $65
PSU - XFX PRO550W - $55 after MIR
CASE - Rosewill Challenger - $55
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium x64 - $100
Monitor - ASUS 27" BackLight LED w/ Webcam - $330
