Read it, went to NCIX and tried it, too hard for me >.>

The slightly lower price should compensate for the $100 when he converts it to CAD

Ok, my list:
  • Coolermaster CM 690 Mid Tower Black ATX Case $79.73
  • G.SKILL F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ PC2-8000 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1000 $99.99
  • LG G-H20NS10 Black DVD+RW 20X8X16 DVD-RW 20X6X16 INT SATA $31.28
  • Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition 64BIT DVD OEM $116.14
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Dual Core Processor LGA775 2.53GHZ $169.99
  • Visiontek Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI-I Video Card $311.33
  • Gigabyte EP45-DS3L ATX LGA775 P45 DDR2 $129.99
  • Logitech Deluxe 250 Desktop Black Keyboard & Optical Mouse PS/2 $16.40
  • Western Digital SE16 320GB SATA2 7200RPM 16MB Cache $62.44
  • PC Power & Cooling PPCS500 Silencer 500 EPS12V 500W $84.99
  • Xigmatek HDT-S1283 Direct Touch 4 Heatpipe Heatsink $35.49
Total $1,137.77 CAD.

I know I am a little bit over, but the HD 4870 is worth it. I believe E7200 + HD 4870 is a better performing combination than E8400 + HD 4850. I choose a cheap keyboard/mouse combo... easy to upgrade later.

thanks I wish I could rep you
and a thanks goes out to everyone else
I will keep these lists in mind
but for now, I might just sell him my computer for a fraction of the price and build a new one for myself
I mean, he has a small monitor so my computer can handle any game easily at his resolution

Your build will cost $1,201.58 on NCIX.

Plus, there are some odd weaknesses: 1) Windows XP 32-Bit while you include 4GB RAM; 2) an IDE DVD burner; 3) where are the keyboard and mouse. The OP indicated he needed everything except monitor.

No need for the Arctic Silver ACN-60ML kit. A bottle of high % alcohol from the local hardware store will do the same for less money (<$5 for a big bottle)

EDIT: yep, your rig should handle gaming at resolutions like 1280x1024 easily (except Crysis at high or above ). The only weakness in your rig is the RAM.
