You'll need an operating system and a processor

*He'd probably only use win7 home as he probably won't be utilizing the features in pro
and ultimate such as xp mode.

*I recommend an i5 if you have the money or otherwise an i3 will do just fine for gaming.

Hope I helped!

EDIT: I forgot also you will need a psi(power supply unit) and a hard drive. If you are still confused check out this video tutorial: YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

You'll need:
CPU: An i5 would be great, but pricey
RAM: about 4Gig of DDR3.
PSU: Something in around 500W will be good for a 285.

How much money do you have to spend?

@ xmadrudex, please don't double post, if you have something else to add to the conversation and no one has posted a reply since your last post (within a 24 hr. period), please use the edit button (looks like a pencil) to add it to your previous post.

Yes, it's pretty basic parts, so they easily match.

Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80605I5760
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Newegg.com - Kingston HyperX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K2/4GX
Newegg.com - LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - CD / DVD Burners
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - Operating Systems

That's $468 befre any rebates.

You could spend more for better and more ram and a bigger faster drive, but why be really nice to your bro.
