I'm going to try building a small rig for my father. I've never built a small one myself so I'm a little anxious about it. Not a lot of room to work with but he's not a gamer or anything, so cable management shouldn’t be that bad. All he needs is something capable of surfing, watching YouTube and such. So, no GPU or super-beefy components. His primary concern is longevity; he's had the one he's got now for a decade.
One of my problems is I can't seem to turn off my gamer goggles long enough to consider parts that aren't uber. So, I could use some input. I cant even decide on a case. I'd like to do a cube, so I'm thinking either Rosewill's Legacy V6-B or maybe Corsair's Obsidian 250D. Mini ITX should be good, no?
Anybody build one of these types of rigs before that might have some input as to what parts I should be considering, or tips to avoid problematic installation?
Many thanks in advance.
