I built this PC for a co-worker with a few teenagers in the house who only play casual games, so the performance needs weren't too high. I tried to focus this build at a little higher performance level than her current needs so it would serve her and her kids well for the next 5+ years. She's had it for about two months now and compliments me every time I see her on how great her computer is running. The only thing I was able to salvage from her old PC to use in this build was a Western Digital 1TB 7200RPM hard drive. I could've gone with a low-end SSD here, but I didn't want the price to go above $500 and I honestly don't think she'd be able to tell the difference as this system is already so much faster than than the seven year old Dell she had previously (that her ex-husband "sped-up" with all sorts of crapware perf utilities, LOL).
Overall I was very pleased with the snappiness of the system given that it's really a budget/entry-level system. I also offered her a config with an i3 in it, but the price difference to go to the faster i5 and the extra longevity she'll get out of it was worth the few extra dollars (hence this build being titled as "Performance" vs. the other config which was called "Budget Build").
