So my pastor asked me to build him a new computer roll and his budget is $800 not including peripherals and monitor. He can stretch up to $1000 (max) but would prefer not to go beyond $800. Computer is for normal multimedia use, some light photoshop, and some light gaming. He plays mostly strategy games like Company of Heroes and Civ 5, so nothing to extreme, I figure that a single GTX 460 768mb would be plenty in terms of graphical horsepower, and he can always SLI in the future. So which platform should I take? On the one hand, P55 seems perfect, but it's a doomed platform. On the other, X58 is awesome, but probably out of his budget. Then there's AMD, but AM3 is also going to be replaced shortly. So what do you guys think? Oh, he can wait till end of Nov, for the Black Friday sale, so I have some time to decide what to build for him. *Edit: Oh, since my pastor's 40 something and don't know anything about computer, he won't be overclocking.
