I was doing some work on my grandparent's PC the other day, a very old Dell, and I found that I could max the CPU and Ram way too easy. So I talked them into letting me build them a computer for much less than what they payed for the Dell over 10 years ago, $1300...
Grandpa uses it to surf the Drudge Report and watch those interesting news broadcasts on Youtube and Grandma has gotten quite the knack for burning family videos to DVD and distributing them to all the out of state family.
Cable management in this case was non existent, but I was able to tuck most of the loose ends behind the PSU and disc drive so it looks fairly clean.
I was trying to stay as cheap as possible while trying to maintain decent performance. Took me about an hour to put together, it fits spaciously on their desk, and it matches their picture printer. Grandparents happy! check
Twitch I plan to build all of my future builds live on Twitch. I also like to do giveaways for Steam games, so follow me to keep up with all the action!
