    She really doesn't need 16GB of RAM.  An i3 is more than enough for what she does and you don't need a cooler.  The stock cooler should be fine.

    It would be a very worthy investment.  I'd look into a Seasonic S12II or XFX TS since they're cheap and reliable.

    Amazingasian got a reaction from Sombra in Lock framerate?   
    Well, seeing as you have a 60Hz monitor, I'd go for best quality at 60fps but that depends on the hardware you run the monitor with.  A lot of 60Hz monitors can overclock to around 70-75Hz.  There's a very subtle difference between 60 and 75 fps after that but at a stock 60Hz, no.

    Amazingasian reacted to Enderman in I figured out why Nvidia cards started ejecting everywhere   
    no its actually to enable hot swap PCIe for external GPUs
     
    because until now you had to restart every time you want to switch between internal and external GPU for laptops
     
    not a lot of laptops have the external GPU feature but nvidias getting ready for it since more are starting to every year
