Ubuntu! or Vista Home Premium OEM for around $100. You could get teh logictech mx510 (I believe thats the model) that is wired optical but is a great gamer. ITs only $40. I would suggest a 8800 series card but.... Also consider the HD3870. Its perforamce is very good for the price

Why pay $180 for a 9600gt when you can pay $190 on a 8800gt?

I know that would make it out of the budget, but does he NEED G.Skill or a G5?

Show me an 8800GT for $190CAD

And I agree... for the time being, I'd settle for the cheapest kb/mouse you can find. Those things make nice little gifts, and are easy to upgrade. This way, I was able to include 4GB RAM.

I think he specifically wanted that Saitek keyboard..maybe I'm mistakened but he seemed to be a little distraught that it was not in stock at the other site someone provided.

He said he needs a mouse so it could probably be anything.

Is $190CAD standing for Canadian?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130318

That is $164 after an MIR. The prices can't be too different in Canada.

I know he wanted that keyboard, but I still recommend against it. Getting that keyboard means you'll need to offer something else. Imo, that's not worth it. Nothing is as easily upgradeable as a keyboard and mouse. I'd spend the $1,000 on the core parts, and add the more expensive keyboard / mouse later. Again, those are nice gifts, and I am guessing that the $40 or so for the keyboard is relatively quickly saved up.

CAD = Canadian indeed. And, unfortunately, prices are quite a bit higher there. The cheapest 8800GT goes for around $190CAD... (heck, I actually found one for that price )http://www.directcanada.com/products...anufacture=BFG

It might be worth considering, but we'll probably have to cut down from the list anyways, given the high Canadian tax

Words of wisdom right here OP, I can't agree more. Easier to upgrade external parts then internal parts thats for sure. Also 4gb of ram will be teh win
