Hey guys well my friend wants me to put together a gaming PC but his budget is $600. He doesn't expect to be able to play every game on max settings but he'd like the best possible. Try to use newegg.ca or tigerdirect.ca thanks guys!
i3 2120 - $125
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB - $135 (sale)
GIGABYTE GA-H61M-S2PV(R2.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - $70
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - $24
Seagate Momentus XT 500gb (hard drive/ssd hybrid) - $100
XFX ProSeries P1-450S-X2B9 450W power supply - $51 (sale)
Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - $55
Windows 7 Home Premium - $100
All from Newegg and the motherboard is mATX so he won't be able to do crossfire or sli. It's a little overbudget, but I didn't want to decrease anything. Also you didn't say if he needed Windows, if he doesn't need it get a 500 watt power supply and a 6870.
Alright thank guys! I think I'm going to work off of Screwy's rig xD its really at an incredible price! the only think is i might spend a little more and get a full ATX motherboard because in the future I think he'll want the upgradable ram. Any ideas for what mobo i should look at?
Alright well when I went to go look at the prices it turned out that almost all of these parts are out of stock! Could you build me another good rig like this one but making sure the items are in stock?
1. Change i5-2400 to i5-3450 for the extra $10 or so.
2. Upsize the PS to OCZ ZS550W (Bronze)....400 watt PS would be a bit tight...even if it's a quality unit like this Antec (Seasonic). Same price for both.
