So, my father has been using his PC for quite some time, I think probably over four years. I'm not sure what exactly he does, but I know he's mostly playing online (like browsing games) in his free time, and work on building a website or more, and also codes into hardware he builds for systems in vehicles. Now, I'm not sure what kind of PC this kind of usage requires to be good; after all, I never heard him complain that he has a slow PC, but knowing it's pretty old now, he only has 8GB of memory, no SSD, i5-4440, and I personally think it's about time for an upgrade.
Additionally, I have a few ideas for a build:
We have a Gigabyte Z170 Motherboard lying around that when it was purchased (back in 2015), its CPU pins were accidentally pinned. My father managed to, I assume, fix them, but we can't know for sure if it actually works because we don't have a CPU. That's why I want to purchase the Celeron G3900, knowing it's the cheapest CPU for the 1151 socket, just to test if the Motherboard works, and I can also take a stick of memory from my PC to obviously operate the Motherboard.
