10/25/13 Building a new general purpose computer for my cousin's Family who have an ancient PC that needs to be replaced... desperately.
They were thinking of saving up money for a uber expensive iMac and I said F that ***... I can build a faster, better Computer for half the price. Stay tuned.
-Cougar Spike Case: One of the cheapest cases with a USB 3.0 port and a slot for SSD mounting.
PNY Optimas: cheapest dual channel 8GB DDR3 with heatsinks at the time of this build.
Core i3 4340 and AsRock H81M-HDS, Best Haswell Combo deal at Microcenter after combing both in shopping cart: $173.17 total
-Samsung EVO SSD: Cannot cheap out here, this SSD will provide the best user experience for a long time.
-Corsair 430W PSU : Lowest priced modular PSU
[video card can be added a later time if user decides it is needed. I plan on re-using the ancient cd-rom and HDD in their old PC, if possible.]
10/26/13 Just waiting on the SSD which should be here Monday or Tuesday.
