My girlfriends computer is dying (which is good because that thing friggin sucked...) and I wanna help build a new one for her without overspending. She does basic photoshop, video editing, and a whole lot of web browsing...like keeping 30 tabs open on her chrome at all times...
Im trying to spend like under 500$ because she for the most part does very basic computing and doesn't game. However if she got into really heavy photoshopping I would like to give her a processor that will do the job well. Also a slim package as she has a lot of clutter and this last computer for the most part died because she literally kept it on the carpet air side down...
Here's my current idea, but Im open to any changes. I would like to generally keep it in the same case and mobo size but feel free to edit.
