My System Specs

Default New comp for a friend.

Ok so a friend of mine wants a new pc. So I am building one for him. o.k. so I will direct quote him....

"Around 1000$ I think! I wanna be able to play games, and use it for music and email and chat and all, also i want it to have something for editing or making movies! Burn Dvd's/cd's. Thats about it! Not so much games as the other stuff though!"

I think I will see him my 4x1 gig of ddr2 800mhz ocz revision 2, and my GPU 320mb GTS for around 150 ish since he is a good friend.

Well any computer will do the other stuff, the only question is his gaming expectations. If it really is "not so much" for games then why not a laptop as Belgolas suggested.

Is the 8600M GS powerful enough to play games?

try out the asus m51sn-a1, on for $1050. It's a beast of a laptop and only 6.5lbs. I mentioned it on another laptop thread here...3gb ram, 250gb HD, 15.4" wxga, nvidia 9500 gs, core 2 duo t5450 1.66ghz...
