Description

I built this computer for my father-in-law. I had a $1000 budget to work with. He uses the computer for web browsing and some financial programs. And yes, I know the GTX 1050 Ti is a total overkill, but I had to match the red-black theme!

Thanks! It was the same for me - I got inspired from someone else's build.

Love this! So clean. May I ask what is the PCB on the back? Is that something that comes with the mobo due to space limitations?

Thanks! That's the fan controller that comes with the case. You can connect up to 7 fans directly to it, but you can't control the fans individually. Whatever speed you set your CPU fan to, that's the speed that all the other fans will spin (AFAIK).

So... I should've gotten him a better processor because it'll make web browsing faster? I don't think so. 4C8T @3.7GHz is more than enough for that.

And web browsing is faster with PCIe SSD than SATA HDD.

The whole system is an overkill

True.

Will he be telling me that his computer is sluggish for the next 5 years? Nope.
