Good Build for friend?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Alright so Im going to be building a rig for my friend. He wants to record videos on his xbox and do mostly video editing , not much though... stuff like COD and Halo Montages and ****. He also wants to be able to play fallout 3 or borderland on the pc if he feels like it. (which he probably wont play very often) Anyways, I put this rig together and Ide like to get some feedback on it. His budget is $430, not much but whatever....

This combo http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboB...t=Combo.617101

add a power supply yours would do fine. that will leave you with roughly 110$ for a better gpu.the mobo comes with an on board ATI Radeon HD 4250 video chipset.

The build looks good, but I dont know how well he will be able to game on it. The games you mentioned will have to be played on very low settings. That combo is a decent deal free's up some money for a better GPU.

I think this case is better

Mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130290

CPU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103846

Why not just get a Athlon II X4, it will preform better in most aspects.

RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231277

PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817152028

Not a very good power supply, I would recommend something more reliable.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371033

Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814187035

Way way under powered, and its very out of date... Get something at least as fast as this preferably better. (maybe a 450 GTS)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102865

Hard Drive (Hes got a 2TB external HDD so this will be enough)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136073

CD/DVD Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135204

The combo is really a better option. Get it along with a better power supply and video card.

What about this? Keep in mind you do need a video card if you want to do gaming but you can get that later/used... I'd get the 24" monitor so you can display full hd, and it's only
30 more.
