Hi I am making a PC for me mam and I want to source the parts as cheap as possible and brand new.
Here's the rig I come up with below, it needs to be powerful as she wants to do graphics, video editing on it as well as she wants a flight simulator, Oh and she wants to watch TV on it.
I estimated it would cost around £1000 UK pounds but I don't have that much money as I'm poor, please save your tears. I want to spend around £700 max and don't really want to skimp on parts as I'm not gonna be around to help her soon and want to future proof it so it lasts her as long as possible.
