Specs: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, 3.2 GHz / 4095 MB
I'm building a PC for a friend, I'm fairly
confident with doing this sort of thing and have
most of the know-how to do it well. So far
we've put together a list of components, aimed
at being cheap but capable of gaming and I'd
like your opinions on price/quality and most
importantly if it's going to work...

Motherboard: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO 785G (75)
RAM: Kingston 1600Mhz DDR3 240 pin (£95)
CPU: Athlon ii x4 2.8Ghz (£80)
PSU: OCZ 500W (£50)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 300MBps (£46)
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 4850 625M 1GB DDR3 (£80)

I'm donating a case and a DVD drive so that is
unnecessary, however I would like help
choosing a CPU cooler, on a budget of course.

Why wouldn't you just use the stock AMD HSF? And the Radeon HD 4850 is a good card, but why not step up into the HD 5000 series?

I'm not sure if the Processor will come with a HS and fan. If I can
find a 5750 for a similar cost,then I guess i'll go with that cheers.
