This is a mid-level budget build for a friend. Intended use is WoW, Diablo III, and The Sims 4.
Note: The case I used was actually the SPEC-03 Blue, but PCPartPicker didn't have it, so I listed it as the White variant.
Parts were chosen to match a build they found online. They weren't happy with the case I chose so I went for a larger, slightly more expensive case (and I'm glad I did, it made the cable management so much easier) which also needed me to upgrade the motherboard to one with a USB3 header.
This is the second time I have used the Freezer 7 Pro R2 for a build - I forgot how much of a pain it is to mount on AMD CPU slots.
CPU: Chosen to match the build. Later realised I could have had a 6-core CPU for £15 more.
Motherboard: Big fan of Gigabyte motherboards.
RAM: 8GB (1x 8GB) of non-fancy RAM. This can be upgraded if they want to.
SSD: Only a 120GB SSD. I was pushing for a 240/250, but they went with a 120 which will be enough for Windows and probably WOW.
HDD: 1TB of WD Blue for around £50 for the remainder of the games.
Graphics: XFX Radeon - all the other graphics cards I have bought have been XFX Radeons. Never had any issues. Didn't need anything more demanding than this for intended use, easily upgradeable.
Case: Corsair Spec-03 Blue. A dream to work with for cable management, my main desktop build had no cable management at all, and my bedroom desktop was a Micro-ATX Case which was very tight for space.
PSU: Corsair PSU, 600W, Semi-Modular. Never had any issues with the Corsair PSUs. 600w maybe overkill but if they upgrade the CPU/Graphics in the future will be needed.
Other parts: CD/DVD Drive already had spare, popped that in. Also PCI-E wireless card.
While not a particularly stunning build, it was nice to build something as I've not done one for a while. The person I bought it for was very happy with it being very cool and very quiet (and it's blue lights). Then promptly downloaded and played Theme Hospital from Origin...huh.
