So my girlfriend wanted her own machine because she says that she feels as though she cant use mine. She tells me she will give me the money to build her one. She wanted to keep it under 1k. So this is what I came up with.
I originally was gonna go with an i5 but after doing a bit of research and accepting the fact that this would be more for regular use and only minimal gaming I refrained myself from the pricey stuff. She of course decided on the case and after that I just tried to keep the theme.
