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!

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.

Tell me if your friend has a strict budget!

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?

I pretty much just edited my first post to add the 4 slots mobo and make it a little cheaper. It's not a super good bargain like the other dude's, but it's all in stock.

You'll still need a video card and probably a better power supply (I'd suggest at least a 500w Corsair, XFX, or SeaSonic), but that does cover the bare essentials otherwise.

A couple of changes if it was my system:

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.

How does this look guys?

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?It...


- only 2 memory slots on the motherboard

- power supply sucks, it has 65% efficiency.

- slow hard drive, only 5900rpm

With that combo you would have to get Windows 7 and the graphics card for $200. So pretty much $95 for the graphics card.
