This was actually the second one of these I put together in 2 weeks. Built one for my girlfriends dad to do work/surfing on and then realized I should do the same for my dad. Nothing fancy, just something to get the old guys updated from Windows XP.

Nice cable management for a case that doesnt offer any, of course the psu helps but still great job

Thanks! I have been on r/buildapc way too much lately... Its ridiculous what some people do with their cable management.

Nice build for the money and purpose. Only thing is you could have gotten a much smaller PSU, though I see at 37.99, that's hard to beat and gives you a lot of room for pretty much any consumer graphics card if you decide to get one.

It was either $39.99 or $29.99 due to the rebate expiring after I bought one of them. I just really liked the idea of having a semi-modular PSU on such a low budget build for a great price. It was worth the extra $10 for the upgrade room for an after-market graphics card down the road like you said as well.

Perfect for what it is designed for. If it's making too much noise, you could probably get away with just one case fan.

The case came with both of those so I figured why not plug them in. It doesn't seem to be noisy, but I'm also comparing it to my gaming PC with way too many fans in it as well.
