This is a Custom Build for a client just starting out college and wants something cool looking but has a small budget.
This is an extreme low budget machine.
$500 Can't beat it for the looks imo.
Why the Corsair H60? Well where i live it gets extremely hot and humid. With this little APU its crucial that it has enough cooling...and since its hot here all year around its nice to have something silent once it starts to get hot.
Why the High Quality 1866 MHz ram? Well high quality for 1 and for 2 ram speeds+apu=better graphics...
Why the expensive case? Got to look cool to be cool... end of story! :)
