i5/i7 Build for around $700?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to build an i5/i7 rig for around $700? My friend needs one for college and I was wondering what you guys could come up with. Basically he is going ot be using it for some secondary gaming with the primary use being school work. He just wants a fast reliable PC without hassle. His computer also doesn't need to have insane graphics, just decent enough to run CoD and BFBC2. No OS, keyboard, mouse, or monitor.

Check out those combos Tiger Direct has. I pulled off a 700 dollar pc with an i5 750 with a 5750 from there. Case, board, and power supply aren't the best, but I think it'll suffice till he gets more money on his hands.

I think that'll be easy, let me get home from work so I can copy a newegg cart over here.

But top of my head - 2500k build should be in sight, if he doesn't need crazy graphics

U any where near a Microcenter? They will quite often match price to the Egg. They have the i5 760 for 170$. 700$ budget is easily enough to build out a nice rig.
