Description

My mom recently decided to open up her own medical practice, but my dad's old computer didn't have enough power to run her medical applications. For this reason I decided to throw this together for her. There was a free wi-fi card included with the motherboard for those of you wondering how I'm getting internet. The system is running pretty well so far. I didn't have any major problems during the build, the largest was that I forgot to connect the camera header since it was midnight and I'd just been out in the cold for 4 hours. I'm not going to bother posting internal pics since there's not much to see and opening it is a pain.

Never seen a custom aio. Always see prebuilts.

Well yes this is a fairly new standard and also they aren't the easiest things in the world to build. However, I have to say this one was much easier than the last I built once you got it opened up. Opening it on the other hand was painful.

I did this build using the same motherboard as you. I notice that my screen only dims about 5% - a very small spectrum, and hardly even noticeable. It is a little bright on the eyes. Does your screen dim and brighten over a noticeable spectrum? Your answer would be greatly appreciated as it is hard finding others with this build.

Dont know if you are still active on here but I thought I'd try anyways. I am planning a build for my grandmother with this aio solely to be used for the internet. I had a few questions about it. Is there any tips and tricks you could give me because this case looks a little hard to work in. Also in the video on Intel's website they say to mount the optical drive but they don't say what odd it is, so I was wondering if it came with an odd, if not did you get one and which odd would that be? If it didn't come with one and you didn't get one that's fine, I'll look into it to see what I need to use. Thanks! Here's the build I've put together in case you're interested http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3HgXWZ

Not bad, I think the RAM is something of an overkill for that system. I work for a company that maintains Point of Sale terminals for restaurants, and this is very similar to the setup we use. However, you could shave a bit off the price by dropping down to 4 GB RAM, Windows 7, and we'd drop the 500GB down to 250GB or lower.

2x4 is not that overkill, and in fact, dual-channel memory makes the computer significantly more responsive. Windows 7 has only a 5$ difference, and Windows 8 is also faster and newer. A 500GB and 250GB hard drive has a TINY little difference, also just 5$.

Do not ever underspend in a computer if you have more money. It's just not good value but also worse experience.

Her software requires 8 GB of RAM, Windows 8 is virtually the same price, and she isn't good about deleting stuff so she needs the extra space.
