I am trying to set up my friend with a 500 - 700 dollar gaming system.... I need your help... I couldn't get it done in that price range... it might be because I wanted to go bigger and bigger like my PC (It cost 2200).. heres what he needs/wants


Approximate Purchase Date: within the next 2 months

Budget Range: 500-700 He should be able to go up to 800 if he needs to

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Internet uses like streaming netflix and watching twitch.tv

Monitor: no

OS: IS NEEDED and it will NOT be an upgrade version

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg and Frys.com

Location: Las Vegas

Parts Preferences: Intel and Nvidia as well as an Asus MOBO

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Most Likely Never

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments:He will mainly be running soldier front and league of legends and maybe some Diablo 3 here and there.. he said He wants Soldier Front to be able to run with at least 30 FPS

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: He Has A Dell Inspiron 560.... heres his link to his basic system specs http://sythe.org/showthread.php?t=1432672

This would be $726AR after W7 HP 64 is included and was meant as a stock/no OC mATX gaming build but fits your needs
