Simple Surfer for Mom and Dad

Used for web surfing, light flash gaming, word processing. Bought all of it at Microcenter, some pieces as a bundle (like the motherboard/ processor for example) hence the 6600K on a build like this.

Warning to anyone even slightly interested in this case, it has practically ZERO cable management space besides in and on the side of the HDD/ ODD bays<<. Other than that, no space (including behind the mobo tray). Of course, I knew all of this going in and got a great price on it, and managed to make it look bearable.

It has one 120mm as intake (hidden in the picture between the case mesh and plastic front of the case) and one 120mm outtake. Yes the ODD isn't connected, I had no use for it besides installing the OS (which I could have used a flash drive for) but I may need it some day to install something else, who knows.

I like it. That integrated graphics will give what they need just nicely.

For $400, that's one solid web surfer and word processor!

nice build although a higher speed and a 4GB kit would have been a better choice i think. surfing doesnt use that much ram

You make a good point, but it was on sale for quite a decent price.

If it isn't too inconvinient to you, can you measure the distance between the side grills to the back of the case. I want to know because I want to know if I can install a h80i in a pysh-pull configuration as well as two fans on the side grills....

could have stayed with the A10-6600K if it's a simple surferer, but still good build.
