For the last 8 years or so, my grandpa has been using a standard HP office PC with an i3-2120, 6 GB of RAM and a 1 TB HDD as his daily driver. For the last couple years, however, he's complained of slowdowns and other issues, much of which can be attributed to age and whatever terrible hard drive the PC uses. My grandma pitched the idea of getting him a new computer for Christmas, so I offered to build him a new one to save cost and give me an excuse to build another PC. This is what I put together.

Decent case for a budget PC or home office PC. My only gripe is that there is very little room to route cables behind the motherboard tray, despite having an indented back panel. Don't bother trying to route the 24 pin power cable behind the motherboard tray, it will not fit. Even without the 24 pin cable, the back panel has a slight bulge (owo what's this) because of the smaller cables.
