Hello,

 

My friend has a 1yr olf Toshiba Laptop using Intergrated Graphics. He's into Youtube video recording Rendering etc. Which means his small AMD processor won't cut it.

 

As it is, He'll be using it for BF4, CoD, Minecraft etc.  I'm hoping to fit a GTX 760 hopefully with an i5 or maybe i7 if it can be afforded. His price is 1,000 CAD.

 

Hopefully you guys can help out?

 

By the way, why can't I access PCPartPicker? I've tried on my home network and School Domain. Any ideas?

Gday.

Possible CPP is under attack.   

Is the new build needing all new parts, including a OS?

Yes, mine back as well.

+1 for the build.

 

Although the system will give really good performance, if he is going to be recording/rendering games, he will need 2 HDDs as this will be a big bottleneck if only one drive is used.

This is why I refer all members who have topics concerning rendering and raid to my good friend iammykyl  :D

He won't need an OS though. My dad works in the IT Industry and has access to Win 7, Win 8 and so on. I will pass this on to him! As for CPP, I can connect now. They must've been hit with a DDoS attack.

 

Edit:Revised list including 2nd 1tb HDD

Edit: Fixed it :). Stupid settings, can't use the Search button, so I just went on my own laptop and searched the process name :)

I'd presume so, He's not very "Hard-ware" oriented. I'll need to borrow the Anti-Static wrist bands they have. Thanks guys!
