Ok my friend loves to game. He is awating bf2 and wants to upgrade his pc so he can play it. When he gave me the specs and said it was from 2001 i said forget it build one. He said he didnt know how and asked if i could and i know how so i will. Ive made some good rigs up before but because you guys know almost everything i was asking what is the best build for 1500 bucks. He said he loves gaming so i figured amd and he wants the best graphics so i thought sli unless you guys think otherwise just he loves to game.GAME,GAME,GAME. Lol

for around that i would look at gettings a:

3200 AMD 64 (venice)
DFI nforce4 ultra motherboard
EVGA 6800GT
1 gig of memory (ddr400) value would do if not gonna overclock.
any case you like look off
a nice hard drive. think 160 or 200gig would do. get a SATA one though.

thats a nice rig. not sure of exact price though, cos im over in UK and prices around abotu 50% higher over here :'(

Might be over with the new video card, but with a 6800 gt I think you have plenty of budget left diablo.
