    Default A Gaming PC for a friend

    My friend has a budget of around $1,000. Work your magic bunz. Feel free to get the price lower if you can. :P

    Edit: He will need a Monitor, Mouse and keyboard as well.

    I take it these come pre-built or would we have to search the part separate?

    Edit: Or just go to the site and input them parts? I've only used New egg and TG and built it myself lol.

    You go to the corresponding 'prebuilt', hit customize and just pick what I picked. Most of it is the same though.

    IBP was only PSU and GPU.
    CBP was CPU, GPU, PSU, mobo, cooling, case and OS IIRC.

    It can't hurt to doublecheck. He can order extra HDDs and most peripherals without problem. It's mainly CPU, GPU and PSU that matter in performance and that are *****y to upgrade.
