My brother wants to buy a new gaming computer, but I would like some advice for the hardware selection. I made my own computer with online help too (see profile for specs) and I'm very happy with it.
So he needs the computer + monitor and keyboard (mouse, Windows and boxes are not needed). He would like to pay about 1100 - 1200 €. This is what I found on a website and I think it looks pretty good (but I'm totally not an expert in the hardware world ):
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B
Asrock 870 Extreme3
Kingston ValueRAM KVR1333D3N9K2/4G
Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5" 64GB
Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ, 1TB
Samsung Syncmaster 2433BW
Club3D HD6950 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E
Cooler Master CM 690 II
Antec TruePower TP-650
Sony Optiarc AD-7260S Zwart
Logitech G110 Gaming Keyboard (AZERTY)

But I'm not 100 % for the RAM, looks like it's very cheap, but how's the quality (and speed)?
And I heard about some new processors coming out soon (Sandy Bridge), are these worth buying instead?
Thanks in advance!
