  1. Oh ok that makes since. I have never seed anyone labeled "Admin" besides Whiskers.
  2. I might be miss under standing you. Are you going to be copping over everything from the HDD?
  3. My advice is unless he or she is going to be using the device for less then a year buy a SSD with decent memory modules as well as a decent controller (those are usually what fail.)
  4. To answer your question, yes it would ultimately destroy every thing on the disk drive and possibly the entire Earth. just kidding!
  5. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Use this link. You can download the installation tool. You will need internet, a flash drive, and some patience. Open the file once downloaded, agree to Microsoft policy, wait for it to buffer, click create installation media, wait a while, and now you are complete!
  6. What is Linus's username on the Forum? Anybody know? is it Whiskers?
  7. OK, I have not had any experience with sabrent ssds. Are they reliable?
  8. Ya that's a little spendy; I would rather go with the one I have unless there is a better case for cheaper.
  9. Ya the only reason I chose a NVME drive was because it was the same price as an mx500 crucial SATA drive. As far as form factor for a case she wants a tower ITX or mini ITX she doesn't care. she previously used a mid tower Dell so the height doesn't mater but width does.
  10. No she doesn't play anything more graphically intense than Be Jeweled. She does however store lots of files and my grandpa (he is used to be a photographer in the film days) stores lots of photos. The computer that they are upgrading from has a 1tb drive in it and they are currently using almost 256gb. Now before you suggest that I put that old hard drive in there as a secondary drive, I would say no. Why? 1: My grandpa isn't the most careful about downloading things and the current drive is full of malware and a couple viruses (one of which I believe is a more calm version of meltdown). 2: Neither of them are computer illiterate to understand how to use a second drive. Why did I go with and NVME storage? I was going to get a SATA drive but discovered that an NVME drive was the same price. The reason for a better PSU is I would like it to last her at least 6 years. Unfortunately, yes it does make a difference in life span to have a good PSU, I have a really hard time spending money on them. Thanks. please make more suggestions and feel free to correct me if you think I am wrong. Thanks guys really appreciate it. I would use an external drive; however, she is adamant that she wants it to be internal, so I pulled the old one out of her old system. At least it saves $20.
  11. I agree and would use the case you suggested except she needs an optical drive. Is that motherboard reliable? I started a thread earlier and got mixed answers.

  13. Discord What is it? Almost everybody I know has no idea what it is.
  14. Greetings community. I was wondering what would be the best lasting build. I am building one for my grandma and would like recommendations. here is the list.

I would normally never have a case that is over $50 for a build like this. However I since my grandma is going to be using this for a while I would like her to have this one. That brings me to my next point, it is for my grandma. She needs something that will last her at least 6. The other thing with the case is eventually I might build her a new PC in the same case. I am going to replace the PSU as I have heard it is a "fire cracker".
