Building new computer for my girlfriend. Tags: New Build Computer Systems Product Last response: December 11, 2012 10:15 PM in Systems Share Nanekud December 1, 2012 12:27:46 PM Hey people. Like it says in the thread title, I'm building a new desktop for my lady. She's a gamer, so that is what it shall be based around. Parts I prefer are: Intel, GeForce I just seem to get more quality out of these than AMD products. We don't play any hardcore graphic FPS or anything, just some chill MMORPGs, so don't need AWESOME POWAH. I'll set the budget at $700 for now, may raise or lower a bit. This price does not include a monitor or OS. Will not be overclocking. Thank you in advance for your time and expertise.
