Build for a friend in need

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I was going to make this build for a good friend that is really hitting low right now. Long story short, he has two kids and a wife and he just got diagnosed and treated for cancer. All is not clear yet but part of the hard part is over.

Anyways, to the build.

I have:
955PII C2
9800GT and a 4890HD
8Gb of 7-7-7-24 1333DDR3

I have a couple other parts but I wouldn't want to throw them into this build. Basically I am looking for a low budget build around these parts. My range is about $400US. All suggestions are welcome and I know him and his kids would want something that looked "cool".

Bummer to hear, but awesome of you to do this for them.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131402 $84 after $15 mir
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341017 $55 after $15 mir
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185 $55 shipped
CPU cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233029 $25 after $20 mir (white led in tinted fan looks sharp)
Optical drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136216 $16 shipped
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811121096 $40 shipped (This is the most subjective piece, so I picked this one due to the simple design yet stall has a bit of flash- blue led front and a mesh side panel to see the internals, top exhaust for good airflow and lots of cable management holes. Also, bottom mounted psu.)

Total is $275 shipped after $50 in rebates. Will let you save some $$ to add some things - maybe a nice little mouse or keyboard combo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.577061 $24 shipped

Nah, not gonna put in both. I have both of them and was wonder which one to put in. I think the 4890 is faster. I have 8GB lying around. Prob will only throw in 4Gb though.

Thanks for the suggestions on the builds.

I love the way the Antec looks but I can't stand not having a black inside. I painted my 932 black. I like the idea though of getting a 8xx board instead of the older 7xx series. Never bought a Samsung HD but I hear a lot about them and I think I am gonna try it for this build. I haven't heard a lot about that cooler and I guess I forgot to mention that I have an H50 laying around also. Just need to find an AM3 bracket to mount it back on. I do like the blitz case. Its simple and not to big. I doubt this computer is going to have to many extra parts put into it.

Out of the two PSU's that were mentioned would one be a better quality then the other? I wanna make sure this computer is able to work for a while. My buddy and build cars but when it comes to computers he doesn't know a whole lot.

Thanks again guys for the suggestions. I think I might order some parts this week.

Both psus are good, but I would get the XFX if the price in not an issue (seasonic build). The OCZ is a good unit too, I was just trying to save you a few bucks. However, noticing that you won't be putting both cards in the build, I now suggest this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371030. Both of the previous psus are overkill for a single gpu system.

If you want the 8** series chipset: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131668R

As far as the cases go, I agree, can't stand the inside not being black. That was one of the reasons I picked the Blitz.

thats a nice mobo , if ur not scared by the open box tag , id take it since its 30 bucks cheaper then retail , also for the psu if ur going to use 1 card only 430w antec is enought even 380w since the card will be pulling max 130-140w and cpu 125w at max
