PC for the kiddo

My Daughter is 8 and im looking to get her a PC.  I have an old HP elite desk 801G with an i5 4560 in it but for some reason im trying to install windows on an SSD my buddy gave me and I keep getting a GPT error.  I've spent hours researching and trying to figure it out to no avail.  I cant get into Bios because I have no front panel USB connector so it only allows me to push F1 to boot and ESC to enter set up but when I ESC to enter set up nothing happens...

 

Long story short, Im done with this old rig and wanted to build her a 3200G PC as she just plays robloxs and does school work.  Should I bother to build that now for wait until end of June/July for B550.  (im in Canada is anyone wants to through a parts list at me lol.)

 

Thanks for any help

Would personally get the 250 board Roblox should not need that much GPU power so the built-in should do 16gb ram, can prepare a list

Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

If she's just 8 then it's unlikely any benefits from B550 will be tangible for her. Probably just set to go for it.

Why not save some money and get and AMD Athlon 3000G?  It would certainly be enough for Roblox. https://en.help.roblox.com/hc/en-us/articles/203312800-Computer-Hardware-Operating-System-Requirements

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

I changed my mind 8gb is enough you can do an m.2 SSD but not needed case is kinda stealth

never thought about it TBH, kinda forgot it existed.   And if she did want to start playing other games 3200G might be better off
