Description

This is an inexpensive home computer built for a family friend. Sadly, I didn’t get a final picture of it after cable management.

Ah! Right you are. I was going pick that up but couldn't get it as quickly as I needed it. Fixed.

I would've gone with something a little larger than 120GB. If they start downloading videos and pictures (vacations, family stuff, etc. ) it could fill up fast. As an inexpensive work computer, you could have considered a cheaper and larger HDD

Or you can have all of the computer's main files run much faster and have better general operation and use external storage for all of the media you mentioned.

They will be using this computer for Internet browsing and bill-paying. For larger media, they'll use an external HDD with a much larger capacity.

$150 more expensive and slower... not to be a ****, but how is this an improvement?

His version has a much better CPU but for the application it's not an improvement at all. I like your build more.

Here is my list I am building for a family member. They will be using this as a home office PC for similar tasks while storing big files on external drive.

I added a bigger SSD, slightly larger case for me to build in, newer pentium CPU with hyperthreading and better integrated graphics, an optical drive, and newer MOBO so I didn't have to flash BIOS. About $100 more for some decent upgrades imo.

excuse me Rob ,but the cost of your build is currently the price of the CPU, RAM, motherboard and PSU, not the entire build and how is a faster CPU slower, how is identical but cheaper RAM slower, how is my PSU $35 cheaper than yours but still a 500W 80+ Bronze worse and more storage space for a cheaper price. how is my build worse than yours

I don't know why you think my price isn't the entire build, but it is. That's everything that went into this computer.
