hi guys. my friend i wanting to build a new pc. he asked me about the list he put together, but its been a while since i've built mine and i'm a bit out of the loop. i know the basics, but i'm not really aware of what good prices are or what is good value atm.
hes looking for a good midrange build, capable of playing most anything decently. doesnt have to be all ultra settings.
anyway, this is the list he put together and showed me
i5 2500k 3.3ghz
kingston kvr 8gb ddr3 1333
seagate 1tb 7200rpm
antec one hundred case
corsair tx650 psu
powercolor 6870 1gb (x2) -- $330 for both
plus mouse, keyboard, speakers etc not really important
all up hes looking at aus$1100 atm
mostly, i'm not sure about the GPUs. never heard of 'powercolor'. and i dont know anything about using 2 cards.
is there anything glaringly wrong with this? anywhere where he could make some changes for the better?
i dont think he wants an SSD, though i might ask next time i see him.
edit: no monitor included in price
