Brother wants me to build him a computer need help! - Page 2

$200 for an i7 950
$200 mobo (High-end is doable)
$50 PSU (550W modular is doable at this price)
$50 TB HDD (Samsung t3)
$50 video card (Moderate gaming many 50 cards will do)
$60 GB RAM (many deals on ddr3 lately)
$20 OPTICAL drive (as low as 16 possible)
$20 HEAT sink to OC
$100 CASE (very easily to find a case for 100)


I think you can easily build something around the i7 950

Don't agree with buying an older technology that isn't even guaranteed 4ghz on air. i5 2500k is cheaper, faster clock per clock, and it's guaranteed 4.6-4.8ghz on air 24/7.

Btw the i5 2400 is not overclockable.
