Description

I was tired of having to 'fix' my Grandma's Gateway computer. By fix, I mean remove every single adware she ever clicked on.

Just wanted something simple with quality parts. The PSU is the only component I really skimped on quality. I regret it now, because the damn thing is loud as hell. Oh, and why does my Grandma need 1.5 TB?!?! She downloads every episode of NCIS from iTunes. She can't get enough of old Navy dudes and goth chicks I guess. Oh and the wireless adapter hasn't' arrived yet.

More pics on the way. It's not a real build unless you got pics on PCpartPicker amirite?!

Ugh my camera is broken, and I'm stuck with my crappy phone camera.

That cable management. +1 how many cable ties did it take you to pull it off?

only about three. But I had to use a piece of electrical tape for the Power Switch cables.
