Gaming PC for 10yrs old (500$)

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, my 10 yrs old brother did good this year in the school and i want to make him a nice present. Have around 500($)+shipping.
Since it has been long time I have not been building or repairing PC i might missed something but so far i took my time and looked carefully on new egg.

All i am worried about right now is compability, so if you guys could have a look at what I choose and could tell me what i did wrong, or if you can come up with better ideas, i would really appreciate it.

As per now, he is not playing any heavy games, only on FB and some disney online games, but i can see in the future his demands can grow, that is why i`m leaving some space for upgrades such as 1155 socket.

Here is a list of items

p.s. I`m Intel and nVidia fan so i have no idea about AMD and Radeons.

I would say buy him a M11x on dell outlet for cheap, or a cheap laptop around its same specs since he wont really be playing any real games, and then later on when he wants to get into the latest stuff build him a nice PC.

That looks interesting, thanks, but i prefer to stay with 1155 socket so i will be able to give him some nice CPU once he will need it. But yeah, in general you got the point, thanks a lot.

He does not play any heavy games, just because he has no PC to play on as well as age restrictions)

What about compability in my list, could any one check it plz?

I cant see your list of parts!

Ps dont underestimate 10yr olds, i have seen them own 20-30yr olds in pc gaming.
