I'm back! Another friend is looking into investing in a new computer. His max Budget is $800 USD (Including Taxes)

He needs to be able to run leight-medium weight games while recording @ 60+ FPS. The most demanding game he'll run is Minecraft, maybe modded. (I think he uses Bandicam or FRAPS).

My current build. Which is probably the worst build ever Gaming Build 3.0! Any ideas? Suggestions? With recording he'll also be rendering in 720p.

Build #2? Look a little bit better. My only question is. Will he need intel? That being asked because of the HTT it has.

Okay, I guess the question should have been, "Will any of he programs he intends on using be able to take advantage of HTT?"

IOW, determine the software requirements and then build the system to run that software.

Okay, so it looks like nothing will be able to take advantage over HTT.

(Editing: camtasia studios 8 and Recording: Fraps)

So no Intel for him. Will help save a few bucks.

According to Newegg's Specifications and at least one of the Reviews, it comes with two 120mm fans.

--edit--

Just ran across these on DealNews:

Cooler Master 120mm LED Case Fan for $1.39

Kingwin 120mm Case Fan for $2.99

Hmm. That is a great deal. However, I think he wants to think for a little bit and consider some other options. THis was one and I wanted ya'll to check everything out.
