so, i built my own pc a couple of months back but wanna upgrade its cooling hardware. so I'm getting a new case, and an AIO. Considering i will have a phanteks p400 TP and cryorig H7 lying i around i thought i might make my sister a pc for around Christmas time. I want it only to be capable of 60fps 1080p gaming, she doesn't need more than that, maybe not even constant FPS she has never exactly been spoiled. Any places to save money will be GREATLY appreciated.

i changed 3 things
1) cpu either get an i3 8100 or the i5 8400, that i3 is a bad value for the money
2) i replaced the hdd for a ssd, you can always add 1tb later with ease(plug and play)
3) replaced the tn monitor for an ips monitor, its way better image quality and 5ms vs 1ms on 60hz doesn't make a difference.
2)

Yeah i realized my mistake with the cpu. I changed to the Ryzen 5 1600, although how much worse is the i3 8100 REALLY? will also be changing the monitor. Tired brain after work lol.
