    Cheap gaming build for friend

    This is for my friend.


    I have came up with this.
    Seems alright, I didn't choose Phenom processors since they're no longer selling here.
    There is the X4 II 945 one though.
    He plays games like TF2, LoL, Blacklight Retribution and stuff.
    Nothing too resource hoggy such as BF3.
    And I'm sure 560 would run BF3 on the lowest.
    He personally asked for 4GB RAM, even though I myself use at least 3GB at anytime.

    Just some suggestions:
    You could swap the PSU for the Corsair CW series (400/600W)
    You could also do an intel build as it's more future proof...
    Not too sure on the mobo in this case but maybe an i3 2120 would do it...

    No Corsair CW.
    I don't think they're modular anyway.
    FX-4170 is better than i3 2120.
    Quad core is better than dual core with hyperthreading.
    Benchmarks also proves FX-4170 is better than i3 2120.


    Dual Cores with HT or Quad-Core with single Thread - CPUs - CPU-Components

    My friend make montages so quadcore would be pretty useful.

    I pointed out what games.
    Those games aren't resource hogs.
    The GTX 560 itself would run those without a problem even with older socket 775 Intel Core 2 Duos.

    you have to consider bottlenecks though
    bottlenecks suck ;(

    i3s are generally better than FX CPUs for gaming.
