Thanks any help will be appreciated and if you see anything in the image that looks stupid please let me know

Is it this power supply? I don't think I would even use that in a PC, might be good for a breadboard / bench tester...

At least get something like this it's at least halfway decent and a very good choice for office and web surfing type of PC.

First of all If you know nothing about PCs why are you choosing cases for your parents? Second What are your going to be using this Desktop for?

Its just to use for basic stuff like word and I might use it for light games when travelling somewhere because it's quite small and I'm trying to get interested into computers nobody is good right from the start.

And ik about case sizes and stuff and wanted a small compact one to fit my old motherboard/parts in.

Thanks for your reply :)
I'd start with something like maybe a 7th or 8th gen i3 processor and the built in graphics should be enough. Though I would like the others stated I would at least upgrade to a Bronze power supply as well. There are also better cases out there as well. Also I would go with a cheap LGA 1150 motherboard. Before that though what do you think your budget is going to look like?

P.S sorry if I sounded a little irritated was going some computer work for my son and he is a perfectionist lols. I just built him a pretty sick machine as I saw your post .
