I am going to help my friend build his first computer. He is not a gamer, the primary use of the computer will be for everyday use and storage. He has a budget of $800. This is what i have picked out:

MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6813128521

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6819103727

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6820231422

PSW: http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....6817139020

I already have windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. This build is basically just for surfing the internet and saving photos and videos. It is overkill for it will actually be used for. He doesnt care about looks, strictly for performance. Just a basic build.
