hello im building a pc for my little brother well trying to go cheap as hes still young and dont want to build better one as i wanna see how he uses it at his age hes 11 years old
just for 1080p gaming he plays cs go minecraft dying light and im pretty sure he will be playing other games but hes old old pc as it cant handle and it lags so here are the parts i drop the list





so with gpu i will give my gtx 970 as im waiting for my rtx 2060 arrive and i will be giving him a 500gb ssd aswell as i have spare one it should be decent enough to run at 1080p games and maybe other new games

Is something like this a consideration?
It would be much better than the i3 8100 in gaming.

You don't need 600W at all for that build, 550W and better quality would work, even 450 if the computer won't be upgraded anytime soon.

cs go dying light
Those aren't games for an 11 year old...

Anyway

It won't be much better but definitely better than the 8100 (the 10100 is just a buffed 8100), also why spend $15 more on memory if both have the same speed/timings?
There are cheaper boards too if it's for an entry level build.

Yeah, but better upgradability + a bit better gaming performance.
I was to lazy to search for that kit if im being honest xD

EDIT:
Put the B460 since upgradability on a $70 H410 board can be a problem with stronger cpu's such as i7 10700K.
