Hey every one, i am helping my friend build a gaming pc for $550 with and without shipping is fine.
what we have already are windows 7 and a case and also a 750w psu (i think) and a dvd drive, so we can spend more on the components. we have some ideas on what we seen and we would like to get your guys opinion on which is best to buy for 550

Thanks a lot. :sol:
