Looking for some opinions on a system I'm looking to create for a friend. He's looking for a general day to day computer for use by his family. No major gaming (maybe very light for his kids; think free flash games, chrome web store games, maybe some free windows 8 app store games, etc)
Most usage therefore will just be web, email, very basic photo manipulation, microsoft office, maybe serving some light content to his xbox, etc.
Given this usage, the following may seem like overkill, but I also want him to have something that will be reasonably snappy now, use decent brand components and last reasonably well without needing an major upgrades.
Any opinions or thoughts? The following comes to under $800 shipped from alphacity. I've suggested the option for a laptop instead, but he is not a big fan of laptops.
The one component I'm not too sure of is the case. anybody had any experience with the cheap Aywun chasis?
