NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280

Intel Core i5 750 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Processor

Building a PC for my friend what parts do you guys recommend since I already got the cpu and gpu. I just need the rest that can fit in my money range.

to complete this build I'm on a 200 dollar budget

You need RAM, Motherboard, PSU, Case and HDD (and DVD Drive maybe) and you need to do that inside $200?

Good luck with that.

Yeah good luck finding a MOBO for that CPU, they just don't make them anymore

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/F6mBGX that's the least I could do and frankly I don't recommend on getting it unless you're really want to build him a PC which is not meant for gaming.

Sell those 2 and buy this. It has a much weaker GPU but it's a well balanced system and it's about the best you can get for that money - new. You could of course get better value if you buy used, but for $200... I don't think it's doable.

Woops, I thought you said you got AMD 280X, but it's GTX 280. Then it's definitely not doable, sowwy. He'll need to stretch more.

No way you will complete this build under $200.
