Great News!

So I went to Newegg today to hopefully exchange my Define Nano S pls no kill for something more portable (Silverstone RVZ01B) I talked with a good friend of mine (he's a manager) about PC stuffs and me mentioned that I told him I wanted a more portable case. We researched for a bit, but ultimately decided the RVZ01B was the best for me. I said that what am I supposed to do with the Nano S if I'm getting the RVZ01. The guy said that I could see it for another build or something like that. At this point I felt bad about asking him if we could exchange it so we talked about a few other things, and left.

When we got in the car, my dad mentioned that we should make him a PC using that case. Currently he runs an old prebuilt from 2003. (pentium?) He said he wanted to do photo editing, office work, and web browsing with a $1500 budget. He wanted to do this is like 2 weeks but I have testing and stuuff so right after school ends. (June 22) And to put the icing on the cake, I asked him what do we do about my case. He said to pick the case you like and don't worry about the price. ( I pay for my computer)

Pretty great day, huh?

Just one that can do 1080p 60fps. Probably a 1070 at most

Better Monitor

My dad has this one and it's great. The IPS on the 27" is so nice, and the bevel is super thin.

Yeah, but my dad either wants 4K or an ultrawide

Tbh 2 monitors are better. If you get 2 he'll thank you. There is a lot of great things you can do with 2 screens.

He said he wanted to do photo editing, office work, and web browsing with a $1500 budget.

I7-5820k and some nice Blower GPU, and you got yourself a nice office workstation for a business.

Idk if he really needs an i7-5820k, but hey, you never know :P

No GPU? How about an R9 380? (There's a 380X for $183)

And I'd say get higher clocked ram for the hell of it.
