Building a computer for my friend?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I live in the UK and I'm going to be building a PC for my friend. I WILL be making profit from it ( around £50). He will give me £500 to spend discluding monitor and mouse etc. etc. and he wants to be able to run new games like Battlefield 4.

I only use
www.amazon.co.uk
www.ebuyer.com

Including OS (most preferably windows 8)

Cheers, helps a lot!

So basically what you're saying is: I want to make money off my friend, but I don't want to put the work into it to research out the right components to make this budget so I'll off load it to someone else?

C'mon, price out some components that add up to your price range and then ask if we have any suggestions, don't be lazy thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

That's pretty much right. I tend to be a lazy-ass person

Yeah £450 isnt a whole heck of a lot especially if he's wanting to be playing the newest games on high settings.

Here is one for £536. Thats 36 quid over his budget but will run anything at max or very very close to max at 1920x1080. It uses a very solid motherboard that can handle a 8 core - FX chip and some decent overclocking so the upgrade potential is very good. It uses a Phenom II X4 which while a little long in the tooth, with some solid overclocking will be a very capable gaming chip. Good quality parts all the way around and this rig will last him a long time.

Yeah I know you only wanted to use Amazon, but Im not spending 2 hours navigating around their archaic menus and search system when I can throw the whole thing together in a couple minutes on PC Parts Picker.
