I am making another computer for someone in college and this will be one of the of least expensive ones I have made and want some advice my current parts list. The person I am making it for wants to be able to play games at 1080p and just wants an overall fast computer. He was not very strict on how it looks or any brands or anything. I tend to go with intel and nvidia in all the rigs I have made, but I'd be willing to change some parts around to go with AMD if it is a better option. The budget is about $650 including a monitor. I'd just like some general feedback since I've only done a few builds with budgets under $700. If anyone could recommend some ideas to lower the price or get better parts for the same price, that would be awesome. I'd like to get a case with good cable managing (reason I went with the carbide) and have some room for upgrades (reason for 500w psu and 1x8 ram).
