Help with Low Budget Build for friend

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My friend has been gaming on a 4 year old laptop which died last week. He originally asked me for a $400 build (no monitor, case, or os needed).

The best I could do was:
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=25441146

That is as high as he can stretch his budget. If you guys can check it out and recommend better bang for buck I'd appreciate it.

He generally plays league of legends and steam

it looks like the best system you can get for 400. does your friend need the wireless card and the dvd burner? if not then you can put the money towards a better cpu cooler and a bigger gpu that you can crossfire with the apu.

the thing is he can crossfire the amd card and the apu he has, so thats a little more performance. if he had more budget for this he would be able to build a better computer for the money. one thing i would add to the build is a better cooler for the apu.
