Building a PC for my gf...

Recommended Posts

Yo.

My gf is getting frustrated with her old P4 machine and I whipped up this build from PC Case Gear's site (which is the only place she'll be purchasing from) and I'm just after some opinions on it... or if I should change anything, etc.

 

$144 - Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3 Motherboard

$259 - Intel Core i5 750

$120 - Thermaltake V9 Case

$199 - XFX Radeon HD4870 1GB

$149 - Kingston HyperX KHX2000C9D3T1K2 (2x2GB) DDR3

$169 - Corsair HX-620 Power Supply

$059 - ASUS DRW-24B1ST DVDRW Black

$109 - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1TB

Maybe he might have a woman in his life? you know not all people are actually geeks on here, I don't view myself as a geek, I like hardware ie: pulling things apart stage and a few games but thats it software I am hopeless on.

Antec Mini P180?

Antec Sonata Elite?

 

These cases should be within budget.

 

I would recommend the Antec Mini P180, but that is just me.

Yeah I was but I figure it would be better if I save for the Lian Li case I want at $600 or the corsair case.
