Mates build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My mate building a new pc and asked me to help out picking parts, he has a budget of £750. Here's what I've got so far.


Does this look like a good build?

Don't get the crucial memory. They've been shipping single sided , and their stuff has been frying a lot. Also, from what I know visiontek is the way to go on ATI cards.

Yeah I ordered that same bit of Crucial RAM. Luckily, I didn't get part of the bad batch, but theres been loads of problems with Crucial stuff lately.

A TB drive sounds sexy, but they tend to be slower than multiple smaller capacity drives.

Also, I can't believe how expensive an Antec 900 is in the UK, i got mine for 50 US from newegg.com

Good luck with the rig!
