Will the purchase to be done in US or Canada?
Suggestion of components...
Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 ~$130
ASUS P8Z68-M Pro MicroATX ~ $125
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL ~ $47
My pick as the Best 1TB SATA3 HDD:
Western Digital Caviar Black (WD1002FAEX) 1000GB (1TB) SATA3 7200RPM 64MB Cache (OEM) ~$140
How about this for video card:
MSI Radeon HD 6950 Twin Frozr II OC 810MHZ 2GB GDDR5 2xDVI 2x Mini DisplayPort HDMI PCI-E Video Card ~ $260
the i3s are in $100 range
the i5s are in $200 range
the i7s are in $300 range
AMDs would be much cheaper.
Hope these help!
