New Build, thoughts?
I haven't built a computer in like a year or so, but a mate in the army has asked me to throw something together for him. So based on quick google's this is what I've come up with, he doesn't want to go over 2 grand.
Intel Core i7 3820
Intel 520 Series 120GB SSD
Corsair Vengeance CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9 16GB
Sapphire Radeon HD7870 2GB GHZ Edition OC
Antec High Current Gamer 620W Modular HCG-620M
ASUS VE247H 23.6in Widescreen LED Monitor
Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Keyboard
Saitek Cyborg R.A.T. 7
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
Notes: I haven't chosen a case, as he said he wanted to choose that. This all adds up to $1991, which is very close to the budget, but I'm sure he probably won't want the mouse or keyboard I have chosen, I just chose them quickly. I can't seem to find any memory kits smaller then 16gb. He might not even want to overclock and I might end up ditching the cooler to save money as well.
He wants to use this computer mainly for gaming, he wants to get into PC gaming, but hes also a minecraft addict and tends to host a minecraft server on his home connection so I guess 16 gb ram will help that a lot.
Are there any new online shops much cheaper then PCCG these days?
EDIT: Just realised that once again I posted this in the wrong section. Ill report in the where/what to buy forum. Mods please close and/or delete.
My grandmother once accidentally dragged her IE shortcut into the Recycle Bin and called me up telling me she'd deleted the Internet.
