Dads new PC

Upgraded my Father's 13 year old Gateway prebuilt as its starting to show its age. The build is mostly going to be used for casual use and no gaming. Wanted to build something that was incredibly fast and I could upgrade in 3-4 years to a Ryzen 4000 series APU which should hopefully take him well into retirement. Decided on the Inwin BL040 as it allowed for mATX motherboard which was half the cost of any mini-itx board. Plus the case+psu combo was the same price as an entry level ATX PSU + case. Keeping a small foot print is ideal as his PC space isn't overly large.
