    Well, what exactly is your budget for the PC? I would recommend building one yourself.

    Does the above build include a monitor?

    I'm willing to spend up to $850 on a new PC. And no, it does not.

    He still needs the OS.

    If he needs an OS, use the same build except with a Phenom II X3 720 and compatible motherboard, and maybe a 4850. That would leave you with an extra $100 or so.

    yes, good points HK. I can't believe Ritwik7, the Prophet of X3 720, didn't suggest this. :D

    Hey, I completely forgot about the OS! If that's a consideration, then its got to be the X3 720 along with the ASUS M4A78T-E. Also the PSU should then be changed to the Corsair 450VX. That would be about 130 bucks less than the previous build. Would that be enough for the OS?

    I just did in fact. But in this thread. :D
