Just Some Reviews Please
Jan 6, 2013, 9:40 PM
I'm building a friend a cheap pc, and just want some final thoughts and confirmation that this will be a good build . It started out as a real tight budget build ($340). He decided to spend a little more so here's what I came up with.
AMD Phenom II 965 - $99 -
Antec 300 - $55 -
Seagate 500GB - $60 -
Corsair CX500 - $60 -
G Skill 8 Gb - $45 -
Gigabyte AM3+ ATX - $90 -
Rosewill Wifi Adapter - $35 -
Samsung Dvd Drive - $16 -
Total - $460
The GPU will be my Sapphire 6950 1GB.
Any thing you can find that I missed will be helpful, thanks!

Btw, It's not a pure gaming build , hopefully just a solid, reliable build.
