Gaming Build for a friend

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

My friends wants to build a gaming rig and has an approx. $1000 CAD budget. He has all the accessories (OS,monitor,speakers) and only needs the tower. If I could have your recommendations that would be great.

He would like to buy the parts from this website:

Thanks,
Wasbo

ok so I'm still working on this build but it should be ordered soon. Just a quick question, is the PSU is good choice because I have always used corsair PSU's but the reviews on the thermaltake seemed pretty good

TT's are hit and miss roll with a Corsair 650

I like the Antec 300 ...

built alot of systems in them ... decent case with great air flow for the money

The MB is questionable and the unlocked i5's at MC are cheap as dirt if you have one near

Thanks for the quick reply. I think I am going with the HAF 922 and the memory has also been changed to:

Also, is there another recommendation you had for the motherboard?
