Hello Earth People;
My son (13 years old) wants to build a gaming computer - a truly worthy endeavor. I have built several computers from the chassis up in the past. However, it appears that my knowledge and experience from the 80's / 90's are insufficient for building a truly modern gaming system.
SimCity5 is the target game that the hardware is being bought for. I have included some info and links above.
What I need is some advice from someone who has done this recently. The budget is around $600 (before taxes, shipping, etc...)
If we could start with a CPU / Video Card combo from the newegg.com link above, that would be great. However, if there are better sources for hardware I am open to suggestions.
In the end I would like a fairly complete solution with the motherboard, case and OS specified as well.
Thanks in advance!
