If you want a prebuilt system i would check these guys out
http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/landingpages/intel/i7/?gclid=CK7U3-eQoKwCFYtR7Aod6HDHDw

I have bought 2 pc and a freind has bought one. They are good machines.

If you order from them BE SURE to go through the all the custom tabs as Some packages do not come with a operating system and may require an upgdrade

700-1000$ is a great price range to work with, has he built a pc before? if so go to newegg and price out the all the parts that work for you. If not go the route Ironman suggested!

I'll help you out spam. I'll try to get something together tonight. I assume he has a monitor.

Ok sPAM I have a wishlist set up for you in newegg, i just need your email to send it to you. Mind, it was created in 15 min and has nothing but BF3 in mind. It has no monitor, mouse, dvd burner, or keyboard. I figure you can get those yourself. Also, you will want to search online and instore to shave money off the top. Maybe you might be able to save $100-150... maybe. Check MicroCenter, Fry's, Newegg, Tigerdirect, etc. This build is $794.93 through Newegg as it stands. It'll play BF3 well.

Travis

For example, i just found the same processor at MicroCenter for $99.99, saving you a cool $25. You have to go pick it up though.

Whatever you order do me a favor and don't order it through tigerdirect, use newegg because tiger's shipping is the dumbest thing I ever heard of, ordered a cpu cooler through them and they shipped it UPS but when it got to my city they transfered it to the post office and now i have to wait another 2 days for it to get to me.
Shocked ... Mad ... Sad ...

They just did that with the ram I ordered, and it was through Newegg. I think its something new UPS and USPS worked out.
