Help upgrading my friend

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My friend is looking for a new video card, a board with at least sli or crossfire and depending on how much ram slots the motherboard has, 8Gigs of ram with some slots open or 12G.

His budget is 500$
Thanks for anyone that can find low prices.
I'm looking for it, but I was seeing if any of you could find low prices.

What kind of computer does your friend have? It would be helpful to know if its AMD, Intel, 775, 1556, 1366, ect. Also why does he need 8 or 12GB of memory? Unless he is doing some major file rendering, most users don't use more than 4Gb. And since your looking for "crossfire and sli" do you want the price for 2 video cards? or is that for future upgrades? What type of PSU does he have? C'mon give us some info

Hehe, I already asked him for his PSU he said he would tell me later.
This is his processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103656(AMD)
He host servers on certain games, so he needs the ram.
He would rather have 1 video card, so he can upgrade it later on.

Ahh, I guess I'm going to do it by myself...
I suck at finding good prices on things, xD.
