Ok, to start off, my friend needs a computer, and since its Cyber Monday week on Amazon (which ends tomorrow) I need an answer as to whether this setup is compatible and good for gaming and such. I mainly got it off this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFiW26shjmE but some parts are different, such as the case. Here are the links:

I also need a compatible motherboard for this setup. Thanks for all your help!

Here is a link to a build that is within $500

Let me know if you are overclocking, if not I can cut down the price by going for another motherboard and dropping the aftermarket cooler.

*on a side note, anyone know how to do that price breakdown thing and post it on the forum? Still don't know how to do that, I only post the link :lol:

I asked my friend, he said that he won't, but does that mean he doesn't need the cooler and the PC will do fine (wont overheat) without it?

The stock cooler was designed for stock clocks. That being said it will work absolutely fine. However if his home gets very hot and if he does not like a loud cpu fan then consider getting the Hyper TX-3. If memory serves me well the stock amd cooler sounds like a jet engine when stressed out and near to overheating.

Give this build a look:

Let me know if that's good enough...

It looks good, do you know where we could buy Windows 7 for it though?

Thanks for all your help!
