1300$ Pc for a friend (HELP)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I had a friend contact me about building a pc and needed help with a part list, but I'm not as up-to-date on everything at the moment and need your help.

 

1. Budget & Location

 

1300$ USD

 

 2. Aim

 

I believe that he wants an all around Gaming and Simple editing rig

 

 3. Monitors

 

He says that he does want one 1080p monitor

 

4. Peripherals

 

And he does need a mouse and keyboard - _ -

How's this?  Ask your friend about the last two, since he probably has preferences.

If you still need a larger peripheral budget, consider getting the non-windowed version of the Define R4, which is $20 cheaper.

@FlamingDefibs you should have chosen the msi variant of the geforce 770, about $25 cheaper

 

Alright, I'll edit that in. It should help with the peripheral budget.

Another option. Swap out the noctua cooler for a hyper 212 if you want to save some money.
