$1500 budget for a pure gaming build. Need it from a prebuild site

#1Stalker415Posted 12/2/2013 11:39:38 PM(edited)
Hello, this is for my friend in canada that doesn't want to build it (I tried very hard to convince him otherwise) so I gave his options. He needs an entire rig including keyboard and mouse. He already has a nice monitor and speakers. If anyone can help me build a great gaming rig from those prebuilt sites I would really appreciate it.


$1500 MAX cheaper is better obviously. He will be using 2 monitors and wants it to be wireless capable. I need an SSD as a main and HDD as secondary storage for room. Needs to ship to Canada

Mouse:

Little bit more personal, I would say Logitech G500 or G400s (70 and 40 or 50 dollars, respectively).



That PC isn't too bad (though I don't really look at prebuilts much), though the first upgrade your friend should do is definitely get a 120GB SSD to put the OS on. I couldn't tell if the PC had wireless on it or not, but wireless cards aren't too expensive last I checked.

Does newegg ship to canada? I was hoping to get him something that had an SSD already installed since I am not sure he would be able to do it :(

Installing a new hard drive is one of the easiest things you can do to a PC. Although this would mean he would have to reinstall the OS and drivers. There is the option of cloning then you'll you're delving into much harsher territory.

How is this? It's been a while since I built a new computer. How is that mobo socket and AMD GPU?

I know that but he doesn't. I know for a fact he would mess it up somehow. Would the one I liked already have the OS in the SSD or HDD?

What a horrible graphics card for the specs.

What Tiamet posted is good. You don't necessarily need an SSD it just makes booting and loading a lot faster. Doesn't impact gaming performance.

Any recommendations on wireless cards? Any other prebuilts that ship there would be helpful. Just trying to give him options. Thanks for the help guys
