Build for a friend of mine

A close friend if mine recently moved to Germany, and now is looking to build a new PC. His current budget is $900 (~€650). This will include a monitor. I threw him together this, but I was anyone was willing to look this over? (Use if you want to revise this. I was also considering switching to an APU. He won't be playing any graphically intensive games, but BF4 on medium or low settings would be nice.

What I threw him together (And before you criticize the board, I know LE boards are bad. It's a bit cheaper, so meh. He won't be doing any overclocking.

This would be a better choice (windows is not included but it will fit in the 650€ budget if it is 80€ as you listed.

Overall, this build would perform better. The CPU's are simular in gaming purposes. This build has better ram since it is 1600MHz and a dualkit. It has better GPU, larger HDD, a 60GB SSD for windows.

hope i helped :)

You forget about the Monitor.

I'm not good in building budget Builds but i would take this Ram. It's faster, costs less and has red led's on the heatspreader (yay) . . . and this HDD. Again faster, more Space (1TB) and 64MB cache.

oh, my bad :/

Thanks for the suggestions, but yeah i chose those parts because of the monitor included. I will change the ram and HDD.

Also, the case that you chose is only the side window when you go to purchase it.

I changed the RAM and the HDD -

Should I change the CPU and MOBO to the Athlon and Asrock, or keep them the way they are?
