8yo nephew's pc

Build Description

This desktop build was assembled for the very light gaming tasks of my 8-year old nephew. He had a strong interest in learning how my "adult legos" work. I assembled some very modestly priced components (both new and old) to piece together a functioning machine he can learn from.

Favorite Feature

There's nothing fancy about this build other than the fact that every step was a tutorial for an 8 year old who wanted to plug in everything himself.
