Tags: Build Computer Systems Product Last response: December 12, 2012 7:56 PM in Systems Share Virosa December 12, 2012 7:28:10 PM My friend want to order a new computer for his girlfriend and he want to do it asap. The only constraint is 800$ to 840$ Including Shipping. The computer must be built from scratch.(We will build it from the pieces we order). Edit: We are in Canada. The goal is getting the best gaming performance possible AND for the computer to look cool. She prefer Blue.
