Budget Build Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was suppose to pick parts out for a friend of mine but I've recently gotten into some personal problems right now and I don't have time to pick the parts for him carefully. im a bit emotional right now.

If you can kindly help me out, you'll get +rep. Thanks!

He only has 2 things he needs:

600 dollar limit after taxes + shipping. Ordering from newegg, no tax in NY.
Able to play Black Ops at high settings.

Thanks guys.

This is what i got as of now, picked it in a rush.

An almost 200 dollar dual core just don't seem right these days to me, switch that out to a 750/60 for a couple extra bucks, and if that can't happen, might want to consider some AMD lovins, can't really go wrong with the tried and true 955, usually around 40 bucks less than that dually.

As above poster said, switch the processor for the i5 750/60 or an overclocked i3-550 ($125). About $5-$10 more, but 2 more cores. Also, Black Ops isn't exactly the hardest game to run, so a 5770 is more than enough for 1080p, a GTX 9800 can do that. However, you can get a GTX 460 768MB for about the same price. As for the PSU, the CX series are meh, so look at some 500-650 watters such as the HX/TX 650, TruePower New 550/650, and 550/650 watt Seasonics. Besides that, everything seems to check out.
