Budget Range: under $1400 CAD

System Usage from Most to Least Important: remote access to work + Microsoft office suite + light to medium level gaming at some point + sound card to play sub + soundbar

Are you buying a monitor: Notes on what she said:
"Yes, but can’t look at bright screen for very long ,
can’t be the monitor that gets screwed up with polarized glasses,
she uses apps for extra dimming,
Zoomtext is free trial,
the windows magnifier sucks,
needs something that enlarges the whole screen,
voice to text that doesn’t suck but isn’t too expensive.
need headset"

Do you need to buy OS: Windows 10 & office suite, adobe reader and writer

Preferred Website(s) for Parts

Location: Saskatoon Sk

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional Comments: visually impaired + need big font keyboard, Central vision only, poor peripheral vision.

Edit: We're thinking that a 500GB SSD possibly m.2 will be good enough for storage for a while.

This is what I built with my nephew back in November. Just wondering if there are any updates I should make?

Well why do you need updates? That's a pretty good system unless you're going to be trying 1440p or 4k gaming? You could do with more storage space and the GPU is probably the weakest part, but still plenty good enough for high settings gaming at 1080p.
