Question $1200.00 Build Please!

I am so busy at work and I told my cousin I would knock out a system for him. Could you guys give me a hand. He wants future proof. But wants a Quad core and the 640mb EVGA 8800GTS. That was his only requirement. He has monitor 21" widescreen ad the keyboard and mouse. I was thinking something along the line of the P35 DSR3 Mobo. But all suggestions would be appreciated. I am working late and need to get him a price list tonight if you all can help. He will be ordering from NewEgg. I am gonna OC this baby and want to maybe add the Tuniq 120. Let er rip guys. And thanks for any and all help. Oh Best cooling case he doesn't really care about looks. Oh sorry he is a gamer and plays WOW and is more of that type of player. I think he also plays BF.

well the q6600 is wayy better bang for your buck than any of those...

the q6600 and q6700 were like the e6600 and e6700

remember? the e6700 was double the price of the e6600 but it was only 266 mhz faster?

Quick Replies. Thanks guys. He has the account at NewEgg. So he should be able to get these items from there right? I know no G0 step but he wont notice. LOL. Yeah he wants the EVGA card. This all going to be future proof. I told him only like 1 1/2 years on any pc before you will want to upgrade.

THe 2900pro is also out of stock there..


I would advise him to save the money on a 320mb 8800gta and let that pay for his case or something.
