Building new PC

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Help me out :)

As the thread title says, I'm building a new PC. It's actually for my friend, who has been on a laptop for years, and now he wants to play some modern games. His maximum budget is $1500 NZ dollars ($1040 US), and that includes a monitor. Keyboard and mouse too, but they don't have to be anything special, just standard stuff. He's not an extreme gamer or anything, so just a decent PC that will play the current generation of games nicely would be good :p I have come up with a component list myself, but I'm out of touch with current tech, so I come to the wise tech-gurus of FPSB to help me out. Some more details:
- It doesn't matter which brand is used for CPU/GPU, just whatever is currently the best value. - Actual manufacturer of GPU does matter a bit; I'd rather not go for an unknown brand. - HDD maximum of 500gb, doesn't need to be bigger than that. - A 22" monitor is enough. 1680x1050.
Here's the store I'm most likely going to use for all the parts, so use this to look at/price stuff - Computer Lounge. Any more questions just ask. Thanks.
