Description

This Computer Works great for basic tasks like Microsoft Word, Solitaire, and Internet Browsing. One Bug was with the computer turning on on its own, but had someone look at it and It ended up being fine and works great now.

Recommendation: If you do a build like this don't use a OEM Version of Windows, Use a Regular Version If you need an Office PC and don't have a large budget, this machine is perfect

One Thing I forgot to mention is get a different motherboard. This Motherboard only had 1 fan header so I had to plug the exhaust into the PSU

I love how Solitaire is listed as a basic office task in the description! :) OEM Windows is fine if you're sure you won't need to call Microsoft for help and/ or you want to save money on the license cost, otherwise get the Retail copy. Otherwise, nice build.

Well the person I put this together for Plays Solitaire, and since basically all he does is use Word and Play Solitaire, why not list it as a use?

Way to not go overboard by remembering the purpose of the build when piecing it together. It's way too easy to be like, "oh yeah, of course I want to double my ram for only 50 bucks" or "well this psu has 7000w, its only 40 bucks more, what if I decide I need to hook a microwave AND a fridge up to it?"

Why do you recommend NOT using an OEM version of Windows? From what I understand, the only difference is OEM is like $30 cheaper but you lose access to Microsoft support. Since I have literally never used Microsoft support in my life, I don't think I will ever pay the retail price. Google/the internet is so much more helpful than trying to talk to somebody on the phone to get help.

In a recent build I made for my mom I used an OEM copy of windows 8.1 and had a bunch of BSOD/watchdog errors. It took me a couple hours, some common sense, and some research online, but I fixed it fairly easily.

Edit: I like your build +1. If you wanted to save some money you could have also gone for an i3-4160, but an i5-4460 may be better for your intended uses.

One Thing I forgot to mention is get a different motherboard. This Motherboard only had 1 fan header so I had to plug the exhaust into the PSU. I know I could have but this computer needs to last him like 10 years. The one he upgraded from was running Windows 98!

Always use OEM, tuck cables, and place fans where available screw holes are located.

Oh, that complicates things. They have splitters you can use. I use one for my two radiator fans. The fans will all run at the same speed, but it should work for you.

Maybe. I think you probably could've gone for an AMD APU for about 100-125, and I'd put the rest into more RAM, but maybe 8 GB is fine for that?

Yea I took the Pictures Before I cable Managed A little bit more. Since the computer wasn't really going to be running anything very power intensive I didn't do a lot

What I was saying is if anyone did this build get a different motherboard because the motherboard only had one fan header
