I purchased pretty much everything on that list except the ram/case/hard drive. I inputted the prices i paid/expect to pay(in the case of the case/ram/hdd) into the pcpartpicker.
All i need now is a gpu, she gave me a 350$ budget, but im going to kick in 60$ for her to see if we cant get her/her son a little more oomph in the gaming department.(if it wasn't for her son i probably would have just gone wth a a10 5800k and saved some money lol.)
Now, she will use this computer for the usual, internet browsing, streaming netflix, watching videos, etc.
Her son will be playing minecraft, a few other light games that even my old gt 430(maybe it was 420) could handle, but i would like to do a little better, think we can get him into some of the newer games on medium in this price range?
I just want to get him the best that i can with 80$ before taxes/rebates
They do not have a monitor currently, but they want a 21 inch screen which is 1920x1080p, they will be hooking it up to a 55 inch tv until then.
