Description

built for my aunt's family. needs are just basic computing

went with what i consider quality brands for main components

case was expected to be cheap but was not manufactured well, there weren't enough standoffs for the mobo and the ones that it did have didn't screw in correctly to the case, so had to use the plastic clip ones, which then forced you to install the back i/o cover from the outside, it took some bending and tweaking.

usually using the 25$ apex case i don't know where it went but it was cheap and worked fine

What I would have done was put in a cheaper AMD A-series APU and better case for $40 (such as the fractal designs core 1000 or nzxt source 210). Otherwise, good.

I agree. Especially since this case has a top mount PSU.

Don't downvote if you disagree, instead just reply to me :) I would do that to save money and to get better graphics for videos and such.

Since you're having them use integrated graphics, it would've been better to go with a i3-3225 as it comes with Intel HD 4000 Graphics and it's about 15$ more which is worth it. Anyways, this is pretty nice!

Just a couple questions I just bought this case. Where do I mount the mobo stand offs and where do I mount the hard drive

Good build, although you might've wanted to make it a bluray burner/player if its for family use.
