It's kinda late in here, but that's a PC I'm planning to build for a friend of mine. It is a couple of weeks old, so there's a possibility that prices have already dropped for the components. But I gave it a lot of thought and the parts I chose were all compatible. And, for the price, it is a pretty good choice.

Yes, it's $403, but there're some luxury items in there that you could remove or downgrade so you could get it down to your $350. It's not a heavy gaming machine, but it will probably support anything you throw at it with moderate results.

And yes, I tried to build a "very-low budget gaming rig" with this one, so it'll ultimately be up to your friends' needs when it comes to which configuration he wants to go with.

You could always go much lower using parts that are way outdated, but that's really not something I would recommend right now.

Good luck.

Sometimes I look back and think to myself, "how the hell did I manage to screw this up?"
