Sorry for the horriable organization (btw, it is going to be in raid)....this is a thread from the intel build, but it would be cheaper to go amd alright! its for a friend that is going to be doing light gaming (diablo 3) and school work. Given some suggestions like getting a slower videocard (downgrades from a 4870 1gb) and the vista cd shouldn't be oem (but the dvd retail is liek 100 bucks moar :O). Anyways, any suggestions would be awesome.... i know the PSU is overkill, however its pretty inexpensive for 650 watts....migth help him in the long run if he ever wants something more powerful

thats a good set up and since you got a crossfire board/good psu he can add another 4830 down the line

His location states Canada, so yes.

Anyways, I know it is a pain to buy computer parts in Canada. So much high prices..

Anyways, that looks like a good setup you have there.

Instead of the 4830, get this:

http://ncix.com/products/?sku=39674&promoid=1146

That should save you some nice green-backs, and will not make you loose too much performance (which you could just overclock to get the performance back).
