My Grandpa want's a low power computer.

Pretty much what the title says, any recommendations on parts would be great. Anything under 400$ if you can and I live in the USA.

 

I tried doing one but if you could fine tune it for me that would be great!

Also another quick question kind of off this topic, are sites like urcdkeys.com and cdkeys.com and kinguin.com legit? Could I buy Windows 10 Home keys from there?

 

Anyways thanks for all the help!

thats going to be a pretty big waste of 370$. a used previous gen higher quality/speed machine would be amuch better over terrible parts who's only advantage is being not previously used.

Personally, I'd get the Athlon 200GE over the Celeron there. It's a 2c/4t part that uses less power than that Celeron if memory serves me right.

Ok could one of you send a pcpartpicker list maybe? Thanks.

Honestly, just get some Dell or HP prebuilt that's on sale. It'll likely be faster for less and a lot less work.

Maybe a laptop instead?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I'd probably add a decent mechanical keyboard with quiet tactile switches like Cherry MX brown or Kalih brown switches, so typing is probably more enjoyable (and familiar, if he used type writers sometime in his life).

 

Largely similar to @Herman Mcpootis build, but changed the case to a less generic looking one, monitor to one with IPS panel and added really cheap (due to discount) fans for the components to breath (low power doesnt mean the 1 fan from the case is enough, after all low noise is a good thing).
