hey guys, so a mate of mine has about 500 bucks (australian) and itll cost him 50 to ship it to his place, but he'll probably budge to 550
he says he will use it solely for gaming, and he does need an OS

he doesnt really have any brands or products he doesnt like.

what are your thoughts?

Thankyou, Lord Tumnas

Total: $418

If he cannot get an operating system for free, add in:

Windows 7 Home ($95)

Total: $513

If he can get an operating system for free, then I would upgrade the 7770 to a 7850
HIS Radeon 7850 ($189)
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
Total: $498

If he can spare a little more wiggle room, then swap the 860 to an i3-3220
Intel i3-3220 ($119)

Total: $546

If someone else can check everything over that would be great since I am capable of making mistakes

that seems pretty good, would upgrading to a GTX 650 be a good idea?

With the latest drivers, the 7770 will have better performance.
