Description

Built this for my mom, paid for by the company she works for. I was asked to build a reliable, fast, dual-screen computer that my mom can work on all day. Her previous laptop (that she borrowed) would run way too hot by the end of the day, and after months of me harassing her and her harassing her boss, we finally got this build approved. It was definitely a challenge to manage a non-modular power supply but everything ended up working out.

How well does this do with integrated graphics and dual monitors?

I was going to ask the same thing. I figure with spreadsheets, browsing, basically simple office tasks, it would probably be just fine.

No problems so far, but the only graphic intensive thing that she does is candy crush so I'm sure haswell has that in the bag! haha

Just curious what your Mom does for a living?

You did a nice job managing the cable with the PSU / Case combo that you have.

Manages an office, uses a lot of outlook and excel mostly. The dual screens are helpful for pulling up multiple documents for comparison, copying, and whatever else she does.
