I have a friend that wants a cheap gaming machine. Basically, he was going to either get a PS3 for $500(80GB MSG4 Bundle) or a PC. Everywhere he looked the PS3 was sold out. So he told me that he would buy a gaming PC, IF I could build him one for the same price as the PC. So I built this based on a $500 budget. Processor: Intel E1400 Mothergoard: XFX 610i RAM: 4GB G.Skill DDR2-800 Video Card: eVGA 9600GSO Hard Drive: 250GB Seagate 7200.10 Power Supply: 650w Antec Case: Rosewill ATX Case Black Optical Drive: Samsung 20x DVD±R In total, with shipping that is $551.78, but it has $50 in mail-in rebates. Bringing the price down to $501.78. And since there is no tax, he actually ends up paying less than the PS3. He will be overclocking, but only doing minor overclocks, nothing extreme. Right now, he will be using the stock cooler, so it won't go too high anyway. I know that motherboard overclocks pretty decently. It has decent voltage controls, and I've managed to get every processor I have stuck in it up to 266MHz FSB without problem. He only trusts newegg to buy from(even though we live 45 minutes from a tigerdirect). So we are kind of stuck with newegg prices. Any suggestions for improvement?
