Default Buddies Basic Budget Build Simple but effective for the price

Hey guys I put together a quick build for a friends friend! the components are low-mid ranged and the methodology was to get the best for $500. Although I expressed my great disagreement to purchase anything before boxing day to get the best bang for your buck they literally did not want to wait the week longer to get their build.. so with that said I allowed them to get a quote for parts from CanadaComputers and just give me the parts as I was not going to partake in this madness LOL !
  • Case - Enermax CLIPEUS ECA3212-BL USB3.0 Black ATX Mid Tower
  • Motherboard - ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 Socket AM3+
  • Cpu - AMD X4 FX-4300 (95W) Quad-Core Socket AM3+, 3.8GHz
  • RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1600MHz
  • Graphics - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 1GB GDDR5
  • Power Supply - Thermaltake smartSeries 550Watt
  • HDD 1 - 128GB OCZ SSD (used)
  • HDD 2 - WD Black 500GB 3.5" SATA3 7200RPM
  • CPU Cooling - Corsair H80 water cooling
  • Fan Controller - NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller
  • Fans - 2 x SP120 High Performance / 3 x CoolerMaster Hyper 120mm
  • DVD/RW - Samsung (SH-224DB/BEBE) 24x DVD Writer
I did a video log of the build please take a look and let me know what you think for such a simple budget build, I think it will serve it's purpose for the client.

With this said, they are doing a grand opening of an NCIX in Ottawa on boxing day so most likely will be grabbing up a ton of deals at 4AM LOL Im hoping for a few CPU's or cases or cables or watercooling components.
