Making a new system for friend, help cut price down please
Nov 6, 2012, 8:05 AM
Approximate Purchase Date: Within month or two of posting this thread
Budget Range: (e.g.: 300-400) 700-800 after rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, school, etc.
Are you buying a monitor: no
Do you need to buy OS: no
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: microcenter and newegg
Location: Twin Cities, Minnesota
Parts Preferences: intel cpu, amd gpu
SLI or Crossfire:No
Additional Comments: Plain on buying the CPU and motherboard at microcenter since they are having a deal on that right now. Would like a reccomendation for optical drive and wireless card.
Optical drive just needs to burn CDs and wireless card needs to be there because that's the only way he's going to be able to connect to the internet.
Also free to opinions on the power supply

The list is still private.
The components are pretty good, would change the SSD to a Vertex 4 or Samsung 830 though.
