Building a computer for a Friend
So one of my friend wants me to build him a computer. I told him about the parts i was going to get, and it seems like he wants the same.
Heres what i was planning to get him, and he kind of wants.
Intel C2D E8400
XFX 680i LT SLI
OCZ StealthXStream 500W
OCZ Platinum DDR2 800mhz
Samsung DVD+/-R Lightscribe
Xion Solaris Case
total is about $700, and thats his budget.
He wants the E8400 since theres a bundle at microcenter, and the other mobo thats the same price was an mATX, and he doesnt like that.
So if you guys suggest another board, he will need to get another CPU, which seems like it will be the E7200 for his budget.
I dont think he will be Overclocking since he doesnt know how, and he said he wants to keep SLI as an option in the future if possible.
