Ok so my brother and I am building a new computer for my dad for Christmas. He already has a preexisting computer but it is pretty much *** since he bought it back in like 2002. He mainly uses his computer for work, checking emails, storing pictures, and just average daily things. I don't want to get him a computer that will require an upgrade in a year, I want him to have a top of the line computer so he won't have to upgrade it and so it will run flawlessly. So we compiled a list of parts that we are going to buy for the computer and I just wanted to run it past you guys first to see whether there any compromises or better/cheaper parts that we could use instead. Here are the parts. Let me know your feedback on whether this is a good build or not.
if the system never going to game you can use the gpu money for a faster i3 cpu. myself i swap out the coolormaster power supply..it a no name unit and toss in a cosair or seasonic or a rebranded seasonice power supply. cheap power supply can go pop under load and take out a whole rig or under load not output clean voltage and your dad system going to blue screen left and right.
