For a desk top building one I think is best An I7 is the intel processor not the operating system, That would be windows 7 or 8 as for building a desk top what is your budget and I KNOW the people here would be more than helpful learning you how to put it together. so basically let us know your budget and what kind of use you want it for like gaming or just surfing the web or running a office type program. This info will help us know what you will need to put one together that will meet your needs.

Yes building a desktop is the way to go, need a budget first and what you use it for as well.

THANX GUYS, I was planning on using it for surfing web,office,and some gaming. the store quoted me a price of $1700 for a laptop i 7 but I want the desktop. looking online for Asus I found a few ranging from $1200-$2300 so to build one then, I never built one so, I would need ur help. So I would say the budject would run somewhere in this range

I'm assuming you will need monitor, keyboard and everything that goes with it. For the uses you posted you won't NEED a I7 chip. The I5 and I3 are cheaper and will handle everything your looking to do. With you budget we will be able to put together a pretty good system. I'll do a little searching and try to piece together something you will like and others here will look and see if there are better options on the parts so you will get a good system for a good price.

Newegg.com has some video's to give you an idea on how easy it really is building one.

You can either go with windows 7 or 8 but linked 7 just to give you an idea on final price.

So for this comes to Subtotal: $725.92 For the case that is usually more of a personal preference as is key board/mouse and such. so with this you can pick a nice monitor you like with choices of size and resolution and fit well within your budget. I'm sure there will be others with different suggestions but that's what great about this forum, You get to see more than one persons perspective on what a good build for you might be.

First thing I'll say is, what games do you plan on playing? With a massive budget like that we can piece you a killer rig.

I would go with 4670k and Z87 for 1200+ builds honestly. But really it all depends on what games he wants to play.

True but that $1200 also need to buy a monitor and all the other things to go with it, Depending on what he wants for that will decide what he will have left in the budget for the PC
