    hi im building a rig for my friend, heres what ive come up with so far. chose i5 over AMD since hes doing a multimedia course so would probably be better off with all the rendering stuff, he wont really need 5800 series yet really, can always upgrade in about a year

    so yeah, hows this

    i would go with a higher wattage power supply so your friend can upgrade video cards later.

    Looks pretty good, but I would have to suggest the CM 590 case over the CM690. I had a CM690, and it didn't have all that great of airflow, and it had too many plastic parts (entire front & top)
