New System For a Friend. 3205$~

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I have a friend who is looking to build a new pc. He currently has an old P4, 478 pin or something, well he has saved up some loot, so time to spend :D

 

This is what we are currently looking at(We are in South Africa so R#### can be divided by 7.8 for $####):

Things in RED are final :P Unless you can give a good reason why not to take it.

 

All recommendations/chanes appreciated with a reason ;) Thanks

Provide us a link to the website.

 

So far the biggest issue I see is your storage. You do not want to use a 3tb WD green drive as your boot drive, or even your storage drive. I would use an SSD for the boot drive, and if you can get one.....get a Seagate 3tb drive.

The rig is for gaming. Will change to the seagate 3tb.

Noctua-nhd14 as your CPU cooler.

 

It would be great if that brand comes in different colours rather than crappy brown colour :(

Get one of those new Phanteks air cooler. They come in a variety of colors and they are better.

For R26000 theres a lot you can buy, are you sure that is the budget ? If so, I have quite a few suggestions that I can post - Mainly that 3770K at a ripoff price of R6760, I got my 3930K for less !!
