helping a friend do up a build.

so i got a fren looking to get into gaming, and he was asking for help with a rig he could work with. main games would be csgo and dying light i guess.

 

how does this look? his budget is something similar, he alrdy has a win8 OS, and he will get a dvd drive, whichever is cheapest in the store.

get WD black or Blue

 

everything else looks fine

hahaha. i thought he could save on that. =x 

 

but his latest update seems to tell me he needs to lower his budget. so i might have to rethink things.
