I would have replaced the window on the side with one that has a place for a nice big fan, it keeps your videocard and motherboard cooler.

It's a bit ugly, no?

I have plans for the case to give it a little more character but it is hard finding a case that is marketed for a woman that isn't expensive as f*#k. I was browsing all pretend like and pulled it up asking her what she thought. She liked it.

I've been shopping a bit for the same this ones nice but give one of those glass covered wall mounted ones a look if you got the set up for it they're sexy as hell. And the 1060 for sure if she games at all.

Not opposed to it but you get the hand me down Pentium 2 with something that qualifies for children as a graphics card. If you want something better you'll have to talk to a Saudi prince and risk a beheading.

RE: Building the Wife a New Computer
Settled on a 1050 ti. She's not going to be using it greater than 1080 I have decided. If I were loaded I'd upgrade to the 1080 and hand me down my 960 but no.. She's modest and that will be enough. Even then I'll have to wait to order the last parts till mid-January. PSU calculator shows that 400W will be more than enough for everything. Putting in an optical drive because I have bad habits and a Windows 10 disc I just need to buy a key for. Everything is set to go and I need to have this bit*h built by the start of February.

RE: Building the Wife a New Computer
So I have it all together, updated, etc, etc, etc. I knew she would be anxious to play it so she is. I still am awaiting the Adventure time decals but I have the acrylic 1/8" plate to attach the adventure time logo to the DVD tray. I have the purple mesh off now and modified to not catch the edges. Have holes and 1/4 inch rubber grommets so that I can affix them to the DVD tray with 1/4" acrylic rod and it will extend with the tray. That will make it look clean without a black square. When the decals are added with the final satin coat I'll take real pics with the wife's DSL. These are just from my sh*t phone.

1. SSD's are soo worth it. As a poster already said, once you switch to SSD's you'll kick yourself for not doing it sooner. We who say this speak from experience.

2. If she isn't playing games, a dedicated graphics card is a waste of money and electricity. The onboard Intel graphics works just fine for 2D stuff, even in super high resolutions, and is even capable enough for many older 3D games.

I fail to see the logic in OP's decision on not switching to an ssd, I was under the impression that you had a good knowledge of IT hardware.

Obviously I'm wrong.

Because it's my wife's computer and she doesn't give a s*** about waiting 10 seconds for Grand Theft Auto to load if it means saving at least $100. Frankly neither do I I think most people just build computers with their dicks and insist they have the biggest and baddest. I built my wife's to work better than the dual-core she has and keep up. When SSD is standard it will be for me too. By then it will be cheaper. Right now I can't justify the cost. When a game loads which is the primary use of this computer it runs off of the random access memory which is solid state if. If I wanted to load any faster I would need all of my storage on Solid State. Windows 10 has quick boot so you hardly notice a solid state boot on Windows 10. I don't want to pay for all of my storage to be solid state and I don't consider the benefits to outweigh the price. It is perfectly logical
