Hello all,

I am trying to build a budget computer for my friend.

It will be just mainly for internet surfing and watching movies.

Budget is $500 - 600 just for the computer.

Do you think this build is good enough?

Any opinions will be appreciated!

I think you can stick to onboard graphics for "watching movies and surfing". If he plays RTS though, you could just get the XFX GT N 640 Double D card. Review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIJLJ1Yy9IY&feature=plcp Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Then again, your on a budget, so ... yeah, you might not be able to afford that and probably don't need it.

You don't really need 1600 MHz memory either, that only makes a diff. with video editing or photoshop or something along those lines. Just get 1333MHz.

If your going to store the movies and other stuff, I'd suggest 500GB.

Seems like a pretty decent build though, but you could get mATX, to save you even more money. The thing is, most decent mATX cases I've seen don't come below 80 dollars.
