I read new wife for the build. I've been starting at a monitor for too long a guess that now I see things backwards.

I think a 560ti should be good for her build and an i5 2500k.

I would go with ASUS P8P67-m Pro or ASUS P8P67 Pro, Gene 4 seems a overkill in features though if price is fine go for gene 4.
They are the same price.

Love the suggestions!

Being that the Gene 4 is mATX I could just get her a mATX case! And save some money

Was looking at this for a card:

Any thoughts?

Thats a good card, will run quieter and cooler than a reference cooling design. The Twin Frozer is supposed to be a little bit better though.

The 690 II Advanced Nvidia can take mATX btw no need to change tbh its a good case!

I would go with the MSI over ASUS since MSI promise and delievers cooler and queiter performance.

If the most intensive thing she plays is RIFT then a $600 build is more than enough. Use the rest to take her out to eat

my suggestion:
Phenom II X4 955
Any AM3 compatible mobo from asus
4gb DDR3 memory (Rift doesn't use more than 2gb of ram)
GTX 560
500 watt corsair, antec, seasonic psu
chosen case:

Total should be less than $600 Oh and btw, don't listen to some people here who would go wayyy overkill on recommendations.... No offense tho because you asked it on "Overclock.net"

things might change once she gets away from a laptop perhaps, you never know

just curious, but why Nvidia? the GTX 560ti is a great card, to be sure, but isn't the 6950 a better card and it's not that much more expensive?

just wondering.

i buy Nvidia because i love Physx and they have superior linux compatibility. but if i didn't care either way, i'd totally go AMD.

i suggest the AMD route here. PII x4 (or wait for Bulldozer in September) and 6950. why not save money if all she'll do is play RIFT? i haven't seen you give a real reason for you to buy either intel or Nvidia.

because Sandy bridge is dominating the market at the moment and because Nvidia drivers and graphics card itself have always been the more stable once? Same goes for intel really.

But I could be wrong
