    This case did use screws to secure the PCI cards, so your point is invalid.

    Sandy bridge build would get you the most bang/buck in terms of decent performance then.

    The most bang for the buck yes, but on such a limited budget, I can only see recommending him a 4 core AMD processor.

    Do you need a monitor/OS? I built one for like 750 without it that would run Rift just fine.

    Back before I started building my own PCs I bought from Cyberpower (2001) Arrived after 3 weeks with a failing hard drive, and a bad stick of ram.

    Screw those guys.

    Just make sure you get an Nvidia GPU, the game runs worse on AMD.

    I still get bad sticks of RAM from Newegg and BestBuy, and I got two bad HardDrives in a row from TigerDirect. (The first one had a dented outer shell thingey. The other one was missing the magnetic arm thingey.)

    I'd never recommend an AMD card for a budget build. The second I see budget, I think "460". For better or for worse.

    That's the cheapest computer I feel comfortable recommending.

    EDIT: And hardley that. It's such a huge waste of money. I'd save up another two months and get a sandybridge build.

    Wouldn't a 2300 still be better?

    Ran it fine on Ultra with a $700 refurb system from Best Buy. I can't remember if that was before or after the new vid card. $850 if it was after.
