Description

Hi, I just got done with a pc I built for a co-workers daughter. She is a 10 year old. I was challenged to make it cute and cheap so I chose the purple/white case with purple LED 120mm fans and LED lights.

I had the motherboard, psu, and ram already so I bought the rest. The system wasn't built on heavy gaming, just kids games. Lego, Disney, etc. I only charged her $250 for the build!!

My only suggestion is to try to send that GT 730 back, if possible, and grab a refreshed one with GDDR5 VRAM for better performance. The MSI one you got has DDR3 VRAM. Here's the difference between DDR3 and GDDR5.

I know it's not a gaming PC, but still............. ;-)

Still, pretty nice build. +1 for helping a colleague out.

I tested the games out on it and everything seems to run fine. Multiple monitors work.... Pretty much more then they needed.

The white board on that msi is actually why I chose the card. It matched and looked good. Thanks though

Sure. Aesthetics are definitely a factor in parts choice.

When I was 10 I had something worse...

Hell, right this moment I have something worse... And I recently turned 15! Wait, that's not really a great difference from 10 though...

It's a quite nice build for the price.

You probably should have looked a bit more into your build before pulling the trigger. For 1 dollar more you could have given her a 2TB drive, For the same price, less with the rebate you could have gotten a substantially more powerful GPU, For a little bit I thought you charged them at cost for the build and was a little annoyed, but seeing that you put in the motherboard at no cost, so +1 for helping out a co-worker.

I had the hard drive. It was extra lying around

The cost doesn't show the 3 120mm fans, the led remote kit, or the white external optical drive I purchased either. Oh or the cpu cooler. Which was all roughly another $65 ;)

What fans are those?

They are some cheap off brand fans. The box says Autolizer 1500rpm 31dBA with 15 led's

I really just love inexpensive builds like this and the builder still takes pride in clean cable management. Well done OP.

Super nice build op, love it. Great cable management too.

I'm really considering this case for a friend of mine, and was wondering how the general build quality of the case is? Also he is a bit noise concerned, so did you notice any vibration or anything else from it?

Also, this is the first build ive seen with removed hdd cages, how did you manage that?

I read a lot of reviews on this case before buying it. Most say it is flimsy... It is. The door panels flex a bit and need patience to close but other that that I'd recommend it. It is a $55 case after all. My cases on my pc's range from $90 to $200 and I see the difference... You get what you pay for. This is worth the money it costs.

I remove the hard drive cages on all my builds now. I like the room for either airflow or cable management. I think it looks more clean and a more modern look. Did it on my son's nzxt phantom too. It usually is just drilling out about 8 rivets. The I purchase 3.5" to 5.25" brackets for hard drives. Also 2.5" to 3.5" for ssd

That was very nice of you to do this build (I have the same board); a 1050Ti and a FX-6300 and she's got a nice little starter PC for world domination more advanced games. +1

Warms my heart ;o;

side-note: I'm always impressed at people who can use those types of mice. HOW DO YOU DO IT?! :O

Haha, it's kind of funny. I feel the same about people who use optical mice... I always mentally ask how they do it too. The trackball is so easy, just move my fingers around a little.

Looks over performance, but than again this is for a ten year old, so not bad at all.

The little girl plays little kid games... Lego and sh!t.. Good enough for her, and looks good ;)

What keyboard do you have in the picture? It looks extremely cool. Everything in the build is well put together, and it is so amazing that you put it together for your coworkers daughter.

Thank you. This was one of my favorites. The keyboard is a bluefinger cracked led keyboard. Has also either blue, green, or white leds in the cracks and keys

I purchased it on Amazon for 59.99. It wasn't built for any games at all. Just a pc for Internet and movies. I was looking for a video card to match the pc.. It was msi and has a white board. Looked nice in the build and can do split screen. It was more then what they wanted...

And it plays the kid games they have. If they want to upgrade later they can but they probably won't
