New build, need some suggestions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need help building a budget gaming build for a friend. Price should be no more than 800 bucks with tax. No monitor, OS, sound card or peripherals necessary. Possibly s775 or s1156 based, in an Antec 300 case. No preference toward Green or Red gfx cards, either one should do. No fancy cooling or anything, just has to work.

It's been almost a year since I built a computer and have been out of the scene since. I shop at newegg.

Suggestions please?

Here's what i got so far.



WD caviar black 500gb hd 69.99

Antec 300 case 59.95

Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W psu 59.99



I drew a blank on everything else.

Help!

I've got a few suggestions.

I'll edit the post in a minute with my build suggestions.



That's what I'd do. You can get a non-recertified power supply if you're nervous about it, though, I left that gap in the budget to accomodate that.

If you can't read that, it says includes:

AMD Phenom II 720 Black Edition
ASUS M4A78T-E motherboard
Western Digital 640GB Caviar Black
Antec 300
Recertified OCZ 600W StealthXstream 600W
HIS HD4890
LG DVD Burner
Scythe Mugen 2 CPU cooler
G.Skill 4GB of DDR3 1600MHz

And it all comes to a total of: $762.88 with free shipping.

+1 thanks! Could you enlarge the picture though? Its kinda hard to see

Wow.... i had no idea it was possible to build a decent computer for this cheap. This thing is better than mine

Unfortunately, living in CA i pay tax... some $77.31 of it. This is a great build though.
