So i have a friend whos wanting a mid ranged gaming PC that can play the top mmo's and moba style games.

hes WANTING bulldozer and his mind is set! believe me i have tried :/

From scan
  • Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H60
  • Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
  • 60GB Corsair Force Series 3
  • 4GB (2x2G Corsair DDR3 Vengeance LP Cerulean Blue
  • 1GB XFX HD 6790 in crossfire

£500

From Aria
  • Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H60
  • MSI 990FXA-GD80
  • 60GB Corsair Force Series 3
  • 4GB (2x2G Corsair DDR3 Vengeance LP Cerulean Blue
  • EVGA GeForce GTX 550Ti in SLI

£514

the parts from scan offer higher video performance as they stock the 6790 but the aria one comes with a much more premium motherboard! my head hurts

what would you guys take?

he has a stand in 1100T borrowed from me until bulldozer is on the shelves.

Hmm - go aria FREE DELIVERY! and also get two of these - GTX 460 - http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/...roductId=44316

Practically unbeatable for the price

Edit: go for the Coolit eco II 120 on aria! HERE - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=43968
