Building a pc for a friend: Anything i can do cheaper?


Sep 17, 2012
Hello, so my friend needs a new gaming pc, but he dont have too much money to put into it, but this is what i came up with. Is there anything i can do cheaper and still get the same performance?

Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X EVO - 142$
Video Card: Sapphire RADEON HD 7870 GHz Edition OC - 296$
Cpu: AMD Black Edition AMD FX 6100 -141$
Cpu cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - 40$
Psu: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 - 117$
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB - 117$
Ram: Kingston HyperX Genesis XMP X2 Grey Series - 49$
Case: Corsair Carbide 300R - 124$
Optical drive: Samsung SH-222AB - 27$

Total; $1053

And why is the price so high, you may ask? - It's because i live in Denmark, we got something called VAT/moms. Denmark got the highest in Europe it's 25% It means you take for example a 100$ video card and then you take 25% of it and add it onto the price, so that will be 125$ but! The stores and such need to earn money so the price is even higher.. If you want to know more just google it.
