I want to introduce my son to the PC world as he had grown more and more intrigued with my PC and watching me game. The following build is for him I have the OS and all peripherals needed. The build does not have a GPU as I believe the onboard graphics will be good enough for his needs of roblox and some other very low end games. Options greatly appreciated.

a 500GB SSD would be better than a 120gb SSD and a 1TB HDD for his needs, he might also want a side panel window and LEDs like in your PC, but you would have to ask him

Any suggestions on a nice but cheap case with a side panel and some led fans.

DIYPC DIY-F2-P, I think it comes in black/purple, black/orange, and white. The -P is the black/purpose.

I agree with eesti about the storage, and I'd also skip the CPU cooler and use the stock cooler. You could also consider the Athlon 200GE CPU which is just a dual core Ryzen with an embedded GPU, it's plenty to run roblox and minecraft and such. (The 200GE will even handle fortnite on the lower settings and hold 60-ish fps.)
