Building rig 1100cdn budget

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Trying to build a nice gaming rig for a friend and he already has some parts but the main big ones are what he is after, ive done some price work and i have come up with 2 builds that work well for him, but i still want to see if i can get him more bang for his buck, i usually use tigerdirect.ca for comp parts as they have been extremely good to myself, but if there is any cdns out there that know how to get more bang for $$$ lemme here some suggestions, one thing that is important is that it is at least a quad core cpu, and 780i supported mobo with ddr2 (ddr3 to expensive for him)

What are the 'some parts' he already has, and what does he still need?

basically he has hard drives, dvd/cd burner, net card, sound ect. This is an upgrade for the main parts, what hes looking at now is a barebone from tigerdirect http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...7301&CatId=333

the thing is the board, processor, 500gig hard drive, and psu are what he wants to keep out of it, and he immediatly wants to go to a 9800gt if he goes this route ill be buying the extra parts from him, but i really want to get him a good rig so roughly at that price he could get the same parts seperate at the same cost from tiger, but i know theres many smaller inet dealers that do good deals so basically im looking for some advice as to if this is the best i can do for him or if theres more
