blahblah he said his sister didnt wanna spend that much.
a geforce 6600gt prolly isnt necisary since she isnt a hardcore gamer but it would still prolly be nice. I wouldnt get a SLI mobo just stick with 1x pcie or agp slot.

She wants a 3500 but doesn't want to spend much?

She's after the wrong Processor if that's the case - you need stuff like that (not SLi, 512Meg instead of a Gig, and probably only one 6600 or 5950) to make it worth buying the Processor.

the 10000 rpm in my onpion is a waste of money, If you have the money go w/ a scsi 15000 rpm if not the go with a 300Gb mator 16mb cach johnny for the same amount.

Anyway for ~1300 bucks she ca get this bad johnny below. w/ a 200gb HDD

If you go with a 15,000RPM SCSI you're going to end up requiring the huge money for a SCSI PCI Card and the fact that not only does nobody need a 15k RPM Hard Drive but its dreadfully expensive. 300Gig Maxtor isn't going to be any cheaper either.

Just get a normal Hard Drive
