I got a call from a friend earlier this morning and he asked me to build him a gaming computer. I asked what his budget was and his response basically killed me, $500 U.S., I couldn't tell him no because of how close we are. But I was panicking becasue I have no clue how i am going to pull this off. Well he calls me about twenty min later and he says he wants it to be a mini itx computer.  I basically said sh!t, he said sorry gotta go. I have been juggling ideas in my head all day about how I could give him what he wants and I have nothing. 

 

Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts on how I can make this possible for him.

 

Thanks

does this price include the peripherals or is it really just the PC itself that he needs?

If you can get an LGA1150 platform that would be even better, but this will suffice for an R9 380.

I am running a completely fine ITX build for 480 euros, around 500 US dollar i guess. Look at my page for the specs :)
