My Dad's Potential PC.

I have a lot of spare PC parts, mainly because I have been upgrading my PC for a good while. I suggest to my dad that I build him a system because he mainly uses his ipad. He said he didn't mind and so I created this PC list. He's not a gamer or anything, which is why I'm getting a GT 710.

PC parts from my old system in this build: Ryzen 5 1400, Hyper 212 EVO, B350M Bazooka, 1x8 HyperX RAM,

Everything else is most likely going to be bought online. If you see something that would make this build better for him let me know. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/burlypillow/saved/#view=B4sq4D

P.S. Don't worry about peripherals, I have that covered.

Do you have a spare GPU you can use?

Sadly, no. I sold my RX 580 a while back before I thought of doing this build.

I would use a SSD instead of a hard drive but it looks fine.

500gb should do fine.

I asked my dad about getting a SSD. He said: "If it doesn't talke all day to boot, It's fine by me." So I don't think he would need a SSD.

It’s not just booting, SSD will improve the whole experience. Unless he needs multiple terabytes, I’d include a decent sized SSD.

Might be a little overkill, but try this.
