Yes, i think that's a better looking Case for your 10 years old cousin. (IN RED)

Ram Modules and board in the same colour.

Cheaper SSD drive.

And YES, as JustPCNoob mentioned below the change of the board because you can make that processor run faster that way. ;) (as the BIOS of that board allows that)

$45 extra dollars would get them a 1500X CPU, which may help with multitasking, but would likely be unnecessary.
