Hi guys,
Just looking for advice on building a new desktop for my bro as his current ones around 8 years old and doesn't cut it anymore.
It's mostly just for internet stuff with some gaming as well. Most of the heavier games he plays on his console so this pc just needs to run easier games like Minecraft well.

Budget would be roughly 600-700 AUD, max around 750.
Already got monitors/keyboard/mouse/etc. So just need the actual pc build including case and all that + wifi card since his current one just stopped working.
Don't need anything fancy either like a nice case or rgb just cheap and worth the money stuff.
Plus for storage probably just a 500gb ssd would be enough since we can reuse some of the older drives as well.

Also lemme know if there's any upcoming sales or stuff that we should wait for.
Thanks!
 
Yo bro thanks heaps,
just wondering if you could recommend any wifi cards that aren't too expensive that'll fit with the build.
plus his current pc has like a gtx 950 or maybe 970 can't remember (i think it has two fans), would that be worth reusing and would it be compatible with the build or nah?
You didnt mention the GPU before. You can make a more powerful build and add the GPU, should work fine. The board comes with built in wifi...
