Okay here is the deal, my friend is wanting me to build him a 1,100 budget PC.
Now, I know that his video card is going to be a 7800GT or 7900GT without a doubt, the processor is going to be dual core, either AM2 or Conroe.
The processor will have to be around 550-600W, and I am leaving the case up to him since he will have to look at it for however long this lasts.
He will need at LEAST 160 GB HDD (going to get a SATA seagate one).
Anyways, the main parts are:
Motherboard: unsure for both AM2/Conroe, do not know of any good boards, does NOT have to be SLI supportive, could be regular depends on price. (would like suggestions please)
RAM: 2 Gigs, probably Corsair Valueselect due to the fact he does not OC. (would like suggestions on this please)
GPU: 7800GT or 7900GT - 180-280
Opticals: Got them covered - $63.98 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106013
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 160 GB - $58.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148149
Basically the two main things I do not know as of this moment are the motherboard (never bought for AM2 or Conroe) and the RAM (again, do not know where to find some cheap DDR2 800 RAM that is not $150 for 1 gig). Anyways, the 7800/7900 issue as well as the processor itself relies on these answers.
Thank guys for any help you can give me.
