AMD Mid Range Build Suggestions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all i'm trying to build an AMD $700-800 PC for my buddy. Traditionally I have only ever build Intel Builds and usually not budget builds so I figured i'd ask for some suggestions here since this is a little out of my league. PC will be used for mostly gaming and movie watching, I would also like to teach him the basics of overclocking but nothing too serious. I know he wants an Radeon HD7870 and those are right around $260. He needs everything except for Windows, keyboard, mouse and Monitor.

Thanks for the help!
