Budget build in a few months
My friend wants to get a new comp in a few months once he has built up a few hundred... previously i asked you guys for a $500 budget build that could run cs:s pretty well and you hooked me up with a few good links... but my 1 friend had to spend the money on some bills but dont worry, another friend of mine actually bought that build instead so it wasnt a wasted effort...
but in a few months... what should i look for when picking out parts for his $500 build..
Will the q6600 be cheap enough to fit in his budget you think?
p.s. i found an HP computer that had 2gb ram, a q6600, and a 8500 gt for $700 in this magazine... i know a few people who are nervous about building there own computers, but with those specs do you think i should tell them to buy that and then possibly sell the 8500gt and pick up an 8800gt?
