    Total is 979.92. So you can still build an i7 if you wish.

    Not bad, the price is OK, could be cheaper on the CPU and PSU, but overall I'd say its acceptable.

    The specs itself are decent, I'd try to go with the E8500 however, not much of an improvement, but if you're going to OC you'll have a better set for the same price (your CPU is overpriced by 30-50$ in first place already :P)

    And why did you go from the Geforce 9800 gt to the ATI? I'd much rather get a SLI ready mobo and go for the 9800, in case you'll want to upgrade sooner or later you can always add a second to it

    The new 4770 is about equal to a 4850 and heres some information about it compared to the 4850 and 9800GT.
    http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,682726/...800-GT/Reviews/

    Review: Ati Radeon HD 4770 - Conclusion

    AMD delivered a good package. For about 90 Euros (on April 28, 2009) the Radeon HD 4770 is stuffed with modern technology like DirectX 10.1, GDDR5 and 40 nanometer structure. The cooling solution of the reference design is getting rid of the heat and is not annoying when doing so and also offers some overclocking capabilities. Given our OC results of 900/1,000 MHz overclockers might have some fun with he HD 4770. The only point for criticism on the card is: The comparatively high power consumption in idle mode - AMD still has to work on that for the GDDR5 products.

    The performance is higher than expected. The Radeon HD 4770 is able to beat the HD 4830 and the Geforce 9800 GT most of the time and sometimes even get on the level of cards that are more expensive like the Radeon HD 4850 or the Geforce 9800 GTX.

    Pro & Contra
    + New technology on a small device
    + High game performance for the targeted market sector
    + Good cooling solution
    - Idle power consumption[/b]
    IloveYouToo, is that in USD or CAD? If thats in USD then it will cost him about $1300 CAD. I have not seen an i7 for under $300 on Canadian websites yet.

    E8400 vs E8500
    Both CPU's are the exact same except for the multiplyer, but there's a $50 difference for it.

    E8500 = 9.5x
    E8400 = 9.0x

    I personally don't think its worth it for his Setup.

    I didn't realize he meant 1000 canadian dollars =l. It is in USD so i guess that build is a little over your limits

    The video card isn't that great, You should get one with 7xx MB or more.

    Just looking at your VideoCard's Ram onbard doesnt means its good. I have a GeForce 7300LE that has 256mb onboard, let me tell you its a piece of shit compared to other VC, but for its price ($30) its ok i guess. Dont look at the ram, thats really the last thing you want to check, look at clock speed and stuff[/b]
    This^
    though more RAM Helps quite a bit, it does not mean that a Card is better or not but there are versions of cards with more RAM if the person pays more.
