Recently I found out that my moms old desktop PC from 2011 was broken. I have been building PC’s for years now, so I decided to take a look and see if I could fix it.
Turns out the old system was running an AMD Athalon chip which is now many generations old. A 2.5″ 5000rpm hard drive, and some other very last gen components… It was was time for some upgrades.
With Christmas fast approaching I decided this was a great time to build my mom a new PC and surprise her with it.
|CPU||Intel Core i3-7100|
|RAM||8GB Corsair DDR4 2400Mhz|
|STORAGE||Intel 545s 256GB SSD|
|DIMENSIONS||200 x 60 x 225mm|
|OS||Windows 10 Pro|
While this was not a complex build at all, it was definitely still interesting if not only because of the very unique Realan E-W60 case. Check out the entire build process, including the Christmas day reveal to my mom in the video below.
