Build for a friend

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A friend wanted me to build a pc for around $2000 AUD. It had to use an Antec 900 as the case and include a decent screen. He already has a keyboard and mouse. I have already told him that I can reduce the price by $99AUD if he only goes with 4GB's of RAM and that 8GB's is overkill.

This is what I have so far:



Any thoughts on ways to improve?

I have used PCCaseGear for all of the parts trying to keep it one place to save postage.

EDIT: updated

Get a better heatsink, not sure that RAM will fit under the one you have listed or the better one. Should go with a 750w PSU. c300 out of budget?
