The Kid's Build

The kid got donated, used, second hand and a few new parts to build his first computer. He upgrades from a 1st Gen i7 to a 3rd Gen i7-3770 and a 1050 to a 980. The frame went from an old Optiplex 980 SFF to a Spec Omega RGB. We spent most of our money on parts that wouldn't need to be upgraded like the case, power supply and case fans. We hope to be able to replace the donated 3770 with a Ryzen system sometime in the future.

The TBD parts aren't TBD they just weren't selectable.
Motherboard is an Intel DH67BL
PSU is an EVGA 650 G1+
There is also a cheaper Kingdian 120GB SSD in it as well

The lighting is:
Lightning Node Pro (1):
Spec Omega RGB Case 30 LED Front Strip
2x HD120 Corsair Fans
Lightning Node Pro (2):
4x Corsair LED Strips (10 LEDS)
3x LL120 Corsair Fans

The next upgrade is a better cooler or AIO. We know it's junk, it's all we had that fit the last minute donation of the 3770.
