This doesn't include a Monitor and an OS and it comes out to 979.92. Are you sure that he needs a C2D rig? An amd right would be real cheap right now and unless hes running some intensive applications it would be fine.

The build is I tried to make is pretty solid, but If you still want a C2D rig you can downgrade the video card (if he doesn't play any games), the MoBo (The S3 is really only needed if you want to overclock), the Ram (If you aren't overclocking you can go with value ram). For monitors they go on sale periodically so you should just be looking around for one. For the OS if your friend already has a pervious version of windows then you can get an upgrade edition of XP which i've seen go on sale on the Egg for extremely cheap (~$20).

EDIT-I type too slow... When I first wanted to post there were no replies yet lol.

Ninja, your don't have enough rep to make post a for sale thread, and this really isn't the right place. PM him if you want to talk about sales. Discussion about sales are not allowed out side of the for sale section.

ownzed.

Hi guys, I'm stormy's friend at MC. I'm not kidding you when I say that the prices on New Egg are going to be better than my discount at MC. With essential parts to a computer such as the processor and the mobo, they really only get like 4 or 5 bux off, and even then they don't carry the quality stuff I'm thinking about.

Any reccomendations for a case with good cooling, doesn't have to be flashy at all, just not white/beige?

Thanks for all the help, I think i'm going to try Boredom's rig, just going to get a decent case.

I would say the centurion 5 good case, cheap and good air cooling

meah, were exceeding my budget with alot of this though, I can sacrifice a little in my life but I don't want to have to stop driving in order to afford some of this stuff...

we'll see how much my next pay check is to decide whether or not i'm really going to be able to afford this....I figure I can get about 400 or 500 for christmas, then I'll supply the rest....

once again thanks though!

:edit:
MC sells the Centurion so I think i'm going to get it...we actually have one that's branded by our crappy computer company (PowerSpec) for 10 bux cheaper!
