So Last year when I built my first computer I posted it here for review and you guys did a great job of looking it over and making some recommendations. It still is running like a champ and I could not be happier. Again thank you!

This year, its time for the brother’s computer to be built. I’ve posted parts that I think will work well for him. Please look it over to make sure things mesh well and are compatible. If you know of a better part, please suggest. He is looking for a gaming rig at about $1500 price. He will be upgrading from a sony vio desktop purchased back in 2004. Definitely time for an upgrade.
