Creating a Build for my Niece

Quizix

26 days ago

I'm thinking of building a Computer for my 9 Year Old Niece. She is starting to play Roblox Studio and learning to build. She is starting to learn how to code as well. And she want's to become a Computer Engineer. I'm looking for a super cheap Build that can be upgraded in the feature. Any help? Once it's built my brother has the knowledge to keep it up.

Yours In Computers,

Hmm. Interesting.

Same list with a 2200G or 3200G CPU will run almost as well and save some money up front. The eventual upgrade path is likely to be discrete GPU and a Zen 2 (or 2+ if such a thing comes out) CPU, so I'd start it out at the bottom.

In fact, you could probably start with the dual core 200GE.

Or the new 3000G that comes out later month, even can be overclocked!

Anything else (monitor, keyboard/mouse, Windows copy, etc) needed?
