So my friend is counting on me for buying his new setup. He currently has an average computer. Hes transfering some stuff over to his new build, dvd drive, 700w power supply, hard drives. So I'm up to date on most stuff but I'd like to know if this is the best bang for your buck and will it work....The motherboard isnt the greatest and he knows that but he wanted one where he had at least 2 PCI slots for other devices. IE sound card, tv tuner, lan card for lan games. Anyway this is what I have so far. He's trying to keep it under a 1000 with a new monitor. CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115041 Wanted a quad core, I have a Q6600 but are these a lot better? Are these real quad cores? I saw this one that was $319 and another that was 500 and it was .17 Ghz different everything else was the same. Maybe newegg messed up the pricing. RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122 - He picked this out because it was the cheapest thing he saw, i said that's not why you buy it but he didnt care....He does that a lot and since his dad is a lawyer I guess he doesn't really care about effectiveness over price. Video card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500068 Is the 260 better than the 280 and 9800? He wants to max out every game on the market. I'm pretty sure this will do it. Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135093 That's the motherboard he decided on. It looks okay but will everything be compatible, anything better? TV Tuner card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815260017 Really not sure about TV tuner cards. He said he wants to be able to plug in his xbox 360 or cable tv and watch it on there but I heard Razzel is good but that was the first one he saw he bought off of the price. Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811103010 He wanted to keep the case price under $100 with it still looking good. I looked over this one and it looks like it has pretty good functionality in terms of installing hardware into it. Monitor - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009149 If you guys have any comment or see something that's not right or could be better please post in here thanks!
