For the budget you posted, bang for the buck is all you can afford. There should be no talk of 990FX boards as even the cheapest plus the 7870XT is 2/3 of the total budget. I personally believe that you (or your friend) should actually be looking at a 650TI boost for the budget you are playing with.

The best I could do is this (and it doesn't include the OS or a case).

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Microcenter)
Motherboard: ASRock 970 PRO3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($82.55 @ Newegg)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($55.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($39.99 @ Microcenter)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB Video Card ($234.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 430W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($29.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $552.50
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

For the case, the best deal going right now to me is this:

Diablotek Fly CPA-A95BK for $44 shipped (with promo FREESHIP). Basically a Lian Li for cheap.

This will put you at $600 after mirs, but you still need an OS.



My recommended build for a $600 budget:

Combined with the case above puts you right at $600. No, the Pentium is not as powerful as the 6300, but for half the price, it holds its own very well. You could get by with this for a while until you find a 2500K on sale. Drop that in and be very happy! thumb.gif

1. The 7870 XT was suggested because it is in the same ballpark as the 7870 GHz, which op originally stated.
2. He mentioned potential CF at one point, which prompted the 990FX board talk.

The 650TI Boost is a good card, especially with the sub-200 mark price tag and near 660 performance. The builds look good, so he really can't go wrong with either of your builds. (Of course he would need a case and OS on the first one)

Why do you say that? Was on the recommended list on OCN and has been reviewed well: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story4&reid=214. I have used them in several builds and have never had an issue.

Yeah, I hear you. I was trying not to stray from his original $600 budget.

And yes, that is why I noted about the lack of an OS in the build. All other suggestions here are missing that point.

They are the barebone minimum PSU´s that are not crap they use the cheaper chinese capacitors and not the much better japanese capacitors that the better models do

I never said they sucked or was crap i said they are not that great meaning very average

Short version they are okey but not great there is a reason they are so cheap you get what you pay for
