Friend wants an Intel Gaming PC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

My friend is going into PC Gaming and will be doing 1080P.

He wants to play games like BF3 and other titles that will be demanding in the future.

What do you guys recommend? His budget is $750 + Tax. And is willing to buy ASAP.

**Monitor, Mouse and KB, Speakers, accessories are not to be included in initial build. And he has a copy of Win 7 in hand.

Thanks

I think he's going for possibly a used video card.

I've been looking at: DVD Burner, WD Blue 500GB, XFX 7870 2GB, Corsair TX650, Crucial Sport 8GB (4gb x 2), MSI B75MA-E33, and i5 3470


Total of about: $820
