$400-600 Gaming Build for a Friend?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been off the hardware scene for a while and I'm not sure what runs well for cheap. My friend is looking into a new computer, and I've offered to build him one.

It has been my experience in the past that AMD has the best low-price options for computers, is this still true for the most part?

So basically he needs a somewhat decent graphics card, and just pretty much standard whatever else. No need for any aftermarket cooling, or giant cases, or anything. He would not be upgrading or overclocking.

Thanks
