~$500/600 Build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I will be overclocking this, but not a lot so 3rd party cooling is not necessary, but if the cost speed ratio is right I will go for it Also the case may not have the best cooling so that needs to be taken into consideration. This computer is for a friend so it needs to be stable.

This is not a pure gaming rig, but he wants to be able to play some recent games.

I am so far thinking
CPU
MOBO
GPU
RAM
HDD
CASE
PSU - Need some ideas
Wireless card - ""

Total cost without PSU and monitor is: $421.16

Any ideas for the PSU and monitor which keep it below $600 and maybe more like $550. Opinions on the parts I have chosen.

Ok I am thinking of getting this video card instead, cause he won't be doing too much gaming. It just needs to handle WOW and CSS and games like that @ 1024x756
