Building a PC for my dad

BuchFlake
  • 54 months ago

Hello everybody! My dad is tired of buying PC's from Best Buy and would like to me to build him one. He only uses the internet and email and sometimes plays light games. I have an extra i5 6600 skylake processor because I ordered the wrong one so I would like to stick with a LGA 1151 build. Budget here would be like 500-600 dollars, if you go a little over than that's ok. I am used to building 1500-2000 dollar builds so I don't really know where to start. If you guys could make some parts list for me that would be great. Thanks!!!
