doesn't need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc
just the guts
Marius W.
Yeah. just the tower then
Sure.. can be done definitely
Have you looked at any yet?
ya but there's so many choices lol
amd, intel
4, 8 cores
no idea really
just want to get him something he's be thrilled about
Marius W.
Of course and with $800 you definitely can wow him with it
nice, any recommendations?
Marius W.
Yeah.. I will get you a few of the better ones in that price range

cool, you're being super helpful!
Marius W.
My pleasure.. finding others for you to see
no worries, take your time
Marius W.
If you don't mind going a little higher this one is incredible - http://www.newegg.com/Product...
nice! ya $50 more isn't a big deal with my budget being $800 already
Marius W.
Yeah and it's worlds apart from the other ones I showed you
Even has fun lighting effects he can control
looks like it comes with a keyboard, does it come with a mouse too?
Marius W.
It does... yes.
Just doesn't have a monitor
all good, he's got a nice 24" monitor already
just an older computer that wasn't meant for games
do you recommend intel over amd?
Marius W.
Always
Intel is better for processors
and that one is the top of the line new skylake processor from Intel which was just released 2 months ago and is leaps and bounds better than anything before
sweet, think i'll just make sure my wife is good with it and we'll purchase it tonight. is there anything you'd recommend buying with it for him for gaming? he's got a nice monitor and headset
Marius W.
Pretty much all he needs. You can spend around $25 for a controller too in case he gets tired of using a mouse and keyboard
then he would really be all set :-)
And quite happy too
awesome! well, i appreciate all your time. once i leave the chat am i able to fill out a survey for you?
Marius W.
You can when the chat is closed and thank you so much :-)
Appreciate it greatly
Have a great rest of the night and happy holidays to you and your family :-)
you too!
Marius W.
Thanks :-)
