900$ Friend Build (Done, needs help)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Nothing needed other than the items shown.

I'd like to get this down to 900$ somehow, I'd love to see any suggestions, remember this is NEWEGG.CA not .com

the 900 includes shipping; though I'd like to go less so I can get him a new case.

I know you're trying to save, but spend $7 more and get the e8400 processor.

As it is a budget mobo, get a cheaper mobo maybe. You could find a decent one for $40-50 less.

Also, if you're really trying to save money, the video card is your biggest thing. Maybe the newer 55nm GTX260 would save you about $50-100.

I might be mistaken, but shouldn't you be getting DDR2?

My sig rig, including shipping + tax (minus monitor/keyboard/mouse/OS/DVD drive; those were salvaged) was $750 CDN or so shipped..

Highly recommend you check out shopbot.ca. I didn't even know that site existed when I went to build my rig.. probably could of saved a bit of cash (I just bought it all from NCIX.com w/ the weekly discount things)

Only way your going down lower is with a 4870. You can upgrade to 1gb if you want, but if you really want a case and combos then go with my build.
