Solved ~$650 PC just need someone to take a look Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: May 29, 2012 4:39 AM in Systems Share Topher08 May 29, 2012 4:00:06 AM I am building a PC for a friend on a budget. I picked out these parts fairly quickly, but I think its a pretty fair build.

(Generated by PCPartPicker 2012-05-28 23:58 EDT-0400) I can't go any higher on the price. Are there any compatibility issues here and are there any parts I should swap out without breaching the $800 mark? Thanks! *Edit- Sorry I realize its about a ~$550 build. Typo in the title.
