$1200 CAD AMD Gaming Rig Help!

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm looking to build an AMD gaming rig. I have about $1200 to spend and it must include everything (monitor, speakers, mouse, keyboard). I also need to get myself a legit copy of Windows 7 as well. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to building my own computer so please lend a helping hand

I'll be using this computer for gaming, HD video viewing, burning DVD's then your regular web browsing and msn. However, if possible I'd like to have this system last for quite a few years and still be able to play the latest games.

To make it clear CAD is for Canadian. I've heard of a program CAD but have no idea what it is

It doesn't have to be AMD. As a matter of fact, I was about to post the same thread in the Intel forum asking for a $1200CAD gaming build. I honestly don't care if it's AMD or Intel as long as it gets the job done well.
