Well, this is going to be tricky. However I think I can do this!
-That build is alright, however it's lacking in a few places. The PSU cannot power that GTX 560, it doesn't have the right connectors. Plus that mobo is a little feature bare, and it's missing a DVD drive. A pretty good $600-615 build though.
PLEASE do not get a Raidmax PSU. They are nothing more than box shaped firecrackers. Raidmax is known for creating horrible PSU's to prey on those who haven't done their research. Their cases are okay, but stay away from the PSU's.
Wow I greatly appreciate the responses, I have done a crazy amount of research, and I am pretty competent when it comes to actually putting a PC together, but with all of the different options I have had a really hard time choosing the actual components to put inside of this particular build! The previous comments have been a great help, and I will most definitely be utilizing them within the next few days! And I know that the 8800 is a bit old but my buddy loved the idea of saving when it came to GPU. I guess i'll have to get it into his head that the GPU is quite important when it comes to gaming and hopefully he can allow a little more room in his budget!
Sounds good. I think if we could go to $600, we could get a more balanced build. To be honest though, the build I suggested is pretty damn good for the price. A 6870 in an under 500 build? Yeah, I'm proud of it.
