Fractal Design Core 1100 MicroATX Mini Tower Case (i have a fractal design case and i'd like to stay with this brand if possible)

-using it for email, surfing the net, playing her music and playing games/cat videos for my two year old.

-gotta have wifi in the motherboard.

-going to use an ssd 850 samsung evo and already set for monitor, keyboard and mouse.

-i figure $120 for the ssd and then $120 for windows 10. $600 left to spend.
