$1k Build.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sup OCN!

My cousin has watched me go through my pc and I've played games with him too often when I could run it perfectly while he lagged his way behind so now he's tired of it.

He has 1 grand to spend on a build. I will be building the system for him but I haven't been up to date on the best parts per price range. He needs a monitor, keyboard, and mouse, also a OS. I was thinking of a 19" LCD, Saitek Eclipse 2 or $50 backlight keyboard, and I can get a G9 for $54 (need to find out if he's claw grip or palm though) so I'm guessing that leaves $600 for parts. $200 for LCD, $100 for keyboard and mouse, $100 for OS.

He wants the most bang for buck, quad core, 4GB RAM, powerful GPU. I will OC the system for him. Cmon guys what's the best you can come up with?

EDIT: Please don't limit to Intel, AMD builds are welcomes too.
