    Here's the deal, some friends and I are wanting to put together a computer for a good friend of ours who is completely computer illiterate and less fortunate. I don't even want to get into what he has right now but its having a lot of problems so we are just going to start from scratch and build a nice PC to play BC2 and maybe BF3 when it comes out.

    Our requirements :

    • HD 5830/GTX 460 or better
    • Decent LGA1156 motherboard
    • 4Gb minimum DDR3
    • 600W or better good brand PSU


    That is just off the top of my head. Post or PM me with parts! Thanks

    Also my heatware is under boomstik360 100% feedback

    I will need to get everything lined up to buy all at once. Unless its something we can't pass up.

    Ok now my friend donated his i5 750 to the build so we are looking for a decent 1156 board!

    Everything but GPU has been found. Did some decent shopping and have up to $280 to pay for a GPU.
