Help me build!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to make my sister a computer, and i don't want her to get ripped off so I can put it togheter, but she doesn't want to spend too much. She's talking like under $700. She will mostly use it for the internet, but my bro in law is all about games so i wanna help him out a little too. BF2, Call of Duty 2, and World of Warcraft. I'm giving her a screen, and I have an old case or 2 but they suck, I could put some cash in it too, I love my sis and I don't want her 2 get some carppy stuff you know. Thanks

Get thee (online) to Newegg and build a couple of wish lists--that'll give you an idea how far $700 goes...For inexpensive power w/o HT the Prescott 2.4A on an Asus P800SE is hard to beat--crank it up to 3.6 at least on air--use a single fast HDD if it's in the budget--at least SATA 150 and preferably a 10,000 RPM WD---but a 7500RPM WD250 is only $125--a Nvidia 6800 GT or a ATI 850 XT would handle those games--value RAM -2 by 512 minimum will give you a start--you can always go cheap on the non-essentials like Onboard sound, no firewire, CD/DVD drives/burners. Those are potential upgrades that won't effect the econo-gamer BF2-blaster you have in mind
