My friend James decided he wanted to build a budget pc to replace his 10+ year old hp. Originally we were going to use a pentium g4560 and utilize the integrated graphics because this was going to be a run of the mill daily tasks pc. But after seeing all the parts he could choose from the budget got a little bigger. The pentium ended up being sold out everywhere so a i3 7100 took its place. The rest of the parts were basically his choosing based on aesthetic's mostly. In the pics the cooler looks a little wonky because the cpu hasn't arrived yet and it's just hanging on the mount by a couple threads. I know a lot of people don't like the power supply in this build but I had it already from an old pc of mine and this one has been a solid performer for me. At the end we decided to throw in a graphics card because his son has been taking interest in minecraft lately.
