Description

I built this little PC for my aunt, using what left from my other PC: The case and the PSU. I made a lot of questions about the PSU and the possible problems in PCPARTPICKER forums (thank you guys for your advice). As the CPU will take a little power from it and no VGA card will be used, I think it's going to behave nicely.

About the RAM: Is too expensive these days here in my country. The budget made me to buy only one stick. Maybe add another soon to use the dual channel config.

About the processor: Is about the same price than an APU, so I went for Intel (personal decision).

My aunt is going to use the PC as a printer server, to surf the web and listen some music. only 2 low end PC would be using this one to print.

What dou you think? I think is pretty good for the main purpose and hope it last for many years.

Greetings! Thnk you very much.

Mallory Caroline.

Nice and cheap for the use. Cables look out of the way well enough. She probably won't need more RAM. I would just make sure she blows the dust out every once in a while (or do it for her). I'm guessing there's a front intake fan there behind the HDD drive as that's pretty standard (not familiar with the case and don't have time to go looking for it) so I would move the HDD to the bottom just for the tiny bit of extra airflow you might get. It may cause a dust trap underneath though, just my thoughts. I'll stop rambling now and click your up arrow.

Canned air is over-rated. Take it outside and fire up the leaf blower! LOL
