PROLOGUE: GASP - You mean to tell me that Tiny_Voices is actually happy with the PSU selection?!
All jokes aside, thanks for the recommendation sir:
Tiny_Voices: Antec VP-450 100%. Great unit for the price.
INTRO: My brother in law gave me a call and asked me to recommend a basic home PC from Best Buy in order to browse the web, store photos, access social media sites and manage office documents. My answer: none! Instead, I offered to build him a PC and promised him quality components and greater speed within the same price point. He gave me a $300 budget and I was on my way. I did not have time to wait for some of these parts to go on sale so I ended up donating my spare RAM and cracked open my unused external HDD in order to meet the budget. You will also notice that the price of the chassis is fixed. This is because I had purchased it brand new from a guy using the "offerup" app. He sells several brand new computer chassis at half price!
NOTES ON BUILD PROCESS AND PARTS:
-Chassis does not have any clearance for cable management in the back.
-Motherboard has front USB 3.0 header but chassis does not have front USB 3.0.
-Be sure to wire USB and front headers under the motherboard before installation if you desire somewhat hidden cables.
-Seat HDD BEFORE attaching CPU cooler and fan. Clearance is scarce if not installed in this order.
-This motherboard only has 1 chassis fan header (+ 1 CPU header) so you will need a PMW splitter in order to power single intake and single exhaust. Molex = jet engine.
-When installing Windows 10, PC would get stuck in a boot loop. Windows logo would appear, PC would restart. This happened over and over again until I finally updated the BIOS using the UEFI flash feature.
-Better HDD is desirable given the current speed rating but oh well.
-RAM configuration is a bit wonky but again, oh well.
-Easily overclocked CPU to 4.0 and temps are stable under aftermarket cooler.
-I did my best on cable management and I don't think it's that bad considering the PSU is not modular or sleeved.
Other than that, client build went smooth and everyone was happy. Thanks for reading.
