Alright, my friend wants to jump into computers. He wants his rig to be AMD based, so please don't suggest Intel parts. He also wants it to be Spider, so I guess that leaves out Nvidia. Anyways, he is very picky, and I have picked parts that are both visually appealing as well as specs. So please if you have any suggestions about them, just keep them in "his" parameters. This is what I have so far. $119.99 - NZXT LEXA-NP Black/ Silver Aluminum Construction Plastic Front Panel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail $235.00 - AMD Phenom 9850 BLACK EDITION 2.5GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HD985ZXAGHBOX - Retail $154.99 - MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail $329.98 - SAPPHIRE 100225L Radeon HD 3870 512MB 256-bit GDDR4 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail (2 in Crossfire) $179.99 - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX ATX12V / EPS12V 750W Power Supply - Retail $74.99 - Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PDC22G8500ELK - Retail $119.99 - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM $58.99 - Logitech G11 Silver & Black USB Standard Gaming Keyboard - Retail $219.99 - LG L206WTY-BF Black 20" 2ms Widescreen LCD Monitor W/ f-Engine - Retail $52.99 - RAZER Copperhead RZ01-00050300-R2M1 Chaos Green 7 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Optical Gaming Mouse - Retail $36.99 - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - Retail $6.99 - ARCTIC COOLING MX-2 Thermal Compound - Retail $38.97 - Antec 761345-75025-7 120mm Green LED Case Fan - Retail (3 of them) $38.99 - Logitech X-230 32 watts RMS 2.1 Black Speaker System - OEM Total: $1,618.84 Of course, that is without shipping. He said his budget is $1,500, but didn't mind paying a little over (i.e. +-$150). He will be using it for gaming, and that's it. I have XP ready for him so I don't need an OS either. Thanks in advance for any help.
