Build

Grandma's Computer

by frcguy

Description

Built a rig for my grandma, as the title says. It's absolutely overkill for what she does, but my grandpa is a huge computer nerd and absolutely had to have the latest and greatest. Anyways, it will last her a looooong time, should be reliable, and she won't have to upgrade it.

Part Reviews

CPU

Hellllla fast and really affordable

CPU Cooler

Nice lower-profile option and quiet as all heck

Motherboard

Nice, could use some more fan headers though

Storage

Works fine but makes this awful racket

Case

Not bad to build in but kinda tiny

Optical Drive

A CD drive is a CD drive

Case Fan

Quiet and reliable

Why does your grandma have to have a better gaming computer then me? At least I actually game, unless your grandma is one of those super hip ones.

Its amazing how many people don't read descriptions

So what if his grandpa is a huge computer nerd and wanted the best components possible for her PC? That has nothing to do with what his grandma does with her computer.
