Default AMD ZEN, Parts for a PC!

So here is my situation my friend is paying me 1700 to build him a reliable quiet gaming computer/w a nice case and neon. As you can see I have an Apple(hence to icon) and have not built a comp for about 2 1/2 years. I am a little rusty on the new parts and tech out today. Can you help me find some parts for it.

THANKS

That's quite a bit of money to work with. Just look at Zen's sig and buy whatever he's got.

Find a case that he wants off ZipZoomFly, and find out what kinda drives he wants and needs. Then add those in. Currently, your price is at under $1375. Hope this helps.
