Description

This is actually Ben's old PC, and no parts have been changed inside apart from an SSD upgrade that Ben made a while ago. Holly is Ben's sister. She uses his old peripherals apart from the monitor, where we bought a brand new AOC 1ms monitor at a larger size.

All I did to this computer to prepare it for Holly is make a fresh install of Windows, update all the drivers/BIOS, and install the appropriate software. I also dusted the machine out.

Holly uses this computer for casual use and some light gaming on Sims, Roblox Fortnite and TF2. She plans to play over watch on it.

I have pulled the photo's from Ben's setup as I forgot to take photo's at the time. She uses the same desk but in white and pink.

Might suggest replacing the power supply soon.

The power supply's are not actually terrible. Yes, they will need to be replaced if using higher end components though. They are cheap and not made of high quality, but I have not had a issue with any 11 of them that I have rolled out.

Just because one has not gone boom yet does not mean it is slowly killing the components with ripple.

Thanks for your concern, and I know that the power supply may not be the highest quality, but for the budget of the builds I could not justify spending an extra £45 on getting a high quality power supply. The power supply fitted is indeed a cheap one, but has a decent quality for the price.

That psu is no where near decent. It is borderline junk. The PSU is the most important part of the system. That PSU can't even put out 500W, it can't even put out 300W. All modern computer since the core 2 days get nearly all there power from the 12V rail, Which this psu can only output MAX 22A (264W).

Updated the description a bit. Hopefully makes a bit more sense now.
