So here is the deal, in my main comp I recently upgrade my GPU and power supply and I want to give those to a friend but we need a barebones set to complete it. The power supply we have is a run of the mill 500w power supply and the GPU is a Radeon 5770. Some of the barebones kits I've seen on Tigerdirect and newegg have and i3 or i5 which is pretty sweet.
Roughly what my friend is looking for is and i3 or i5 processor, he said he could live with a simple 500 gig hardrive, and the RAM amount is flexible.
If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it, the budget is around $300-$500 keeping in mind we already have the Power supply and GPU. I'm entirely new to this new comp building stuff and I know you guys can usually work magic with assembling budget gaming PCs.
