Hi Everyone! Long story short, I built this budget computer for my Mom, because Mother's Day just passed and my sister and I wanted to treat her to something. My mom couldn't make the decision on getting an Apple Watch Series 4 w/ Cellular or a new computer. And I'm like dude wtf? Get a new computer, it's more practical and yours is basically in it's grave! Also, I don't want to keep on having to show her how to use an Apple Watch lmao. As she came to her senses, a week after Mother's Day she gave me her final decision on getting a new computer!
I set my budget to under $500. I'm lucky to live near a Micro Center which is why I have so many custom prices. I felt like I saved enough money to throw in some Green LED case fans for ***** and gigs LOL. Assembling in the Q300L was not bad at all, I always felt like I had enough room to maneuver things around. I tried my best to cable manage, but I kept going back and forth with saying my Mom doesn't care how it looks lol. Anyways, I'm happy to say that my grand total was $471.82 (w/ a refurbished BenQ monitor, wireless keyboard and wireless mouse [not listed, it was $25 for both]!
She's totally gonna Google Chrome the **** out of things now.
