My Friend has asked me to build him a PC and given me £500-550 max to spend on it. I have limited experience building PC's having built my own one last year - which touch wood seems to be working just fine. He is mainly looking for speed (wants to run windows 7) and will be using it mainly for photo editing/webdesign using photo shop/dreamweaver (CS3) so RAM is also quite important. Given these requirements I have produced a draft specifictaion and would be intrested to hear peoples thoughts, as far as i can tell this spec should suit his requirements just fine.
I'd also be greatful if someone could advise me whether the components are compatible.. as its been a while since i built me machine.
specs are as follows:-
MB - Asus 775 P5Q Pro Turbo S/L 1600FSB
RAM - Corsair XMS2 4GB (2X2GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel Kit
Processor - Intel core 2 Duo E8400
Graphics Card - Nvidia Geforce 9400Gt
Windows 7 Home premium,
He has already purchased a case with built in 500w PSU.
