My young nephew has always been interested in PCs & tech so I thought it would be a good idea to get him his first decent computer with one condition attached... he had to learn to build it himself with some guidance from me.
He was very keen on having a blue theme which did somewhat limit our part choices. Having said that, I think we came up with a satisfying look to the end product. The parts are relatively low end at the moment but we tried to choose parts that would give us an future upgrade path without having to swap out too many things.
For the time being he only has access to a 1280 x 1024 monitor but will eventually save up the funds to move up to 1080p which I think the GTX950 will be able to handle at slightly reduced settings. We had to choose between a lower end 960 or a more flashy looking 950 with a backplate. The better looking 950 won out considering the current monitor but we may look to upgrade further down the line when funds allow.
