Yeah, okay those last two builds are missing the cd drives and psu. Lol, so p's build is really around $700+. T_T

Okay new challenge, can anyone come up with a $600 build that can actually run, jk, just make sure the PSU/ drives are included. XD

Do I have to buy a heatsink/ fan for the cpu? Okay well it doesn't seem to be part of a bundle in any of those products, so I guess I do have to add that part on. Ah, this budget sucks.

No...but you could if you want to. I would recommend it, if you're overclocking, which you should. And if so, I would suggest the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro.

Wait, I don't have to necessarily buy one? I thought it's a mandatory part or does the Core2's run ridiculously low to avoid such necessity, because I know my P4 can't run without something cooling it down.

Oh wow, it looks pretty cool.

Well it's not necessary...but if you are overclocking, which you should....then I would suggest you get it. It's not expensive anyways...only $20.

Yeah, well now he tells me he'll buy the parts one by one...and we'll start off with a case and motherboard.

From what he tells me, he wants to stick to Core2. Thanks for the list though. I'm not a fan of budget shopping though.

I like the PSU but I've always been told to never judge it by it's lights. But the reviews make it seem promising.
