Hey All....

So my older friends(62ish) mother(maybe 82?.... She's in good nick, hard to tell) has asked me how much it would be to give her a daughter a new computer for her b-day.

Thing is, if she wanted the latest gaming rig and the stuff to overclock the crap out of it.... No worries..... But with this, I have no idea......

Her daughter only shops online on the pc. And emails. So I'm looking for recommendations for the fastest ebay and email page loading mobo cpu mem storage etc.....I'm going to use the same atx case, psu, case fans and stuff because it sits under the desk out of sight anyways..... Maybe I'll bust out for an rgb fan or something.

I'm hoping to put this together for the lowest possible price for her obviously..... I just don't know where I can cut corners buying stuff that still gives the speed of a kick ass 2018 system.... Given her usage seems to be so low and specific..... She has a broadband internet connection (no idea of speed), but if her current pc isn't drawing the max possible, that might be something actually worth spending money on in this build.

I don't expect anyone to shop for me.... If I could get an idea of the important basic elements of whats needed to make it super fast for this use would be very much appreciated...

Thank you....

Mate, no one seems to be on.... Can I buy the literally cheapest mobo with the cheapest m.2 and mem for this friend of mine.... without performance drop if its bottom modern specs.... given her light use.... I just want it to be smoking fast and cheap.... In this build, There's literally no load that I can think off.... I just don't understand what's important for the fastest internet page loading speed and internet speed.... That stuff has never worried me, as I'm always looking for more speed with cpu gc and board generally......

Because i'm not that smart.... and need help lol.... Can I literally buy the cheapest modern mobo with 2x4gb of ddr4 at medium to slow speeds and like a cheap threadripper or i3 that will make her clicks happen on ebay stupid fast..... Or do I need to speed up the cpu from like 3.8 to high fours and make sure the memory is fast as possible for her machine to pop....

Thanks for the storage advice, I just thought m.2 storage might make a difference with that... I don't know, so finding out a 250gb evo will sort storage is great news price and reliability wise. Thanks.
