I needed a computer that wouldn't choke on 1080p 60fps YouTube videos and Adobe Lightroom, so I decided to try building PCPartPicker's Budget Home/Office Build (this build probably has different parts by now, but the ~$400 price tag is still there). The only thing I had to add to the original build was a wireless network adapter. I also bought a 128GB SSD instead of the 480GB. After finishing the build, and trying it out for a couple of days, I noticed two issues:
- The stock Intel CPU cooler is loud.
- You can't view 1080p 60fps (x2 speed) YouTube videos smoothly with the integrated GPU (Intel HD Graphics 610).
To remedy these issues, I bought EVGA GTX 1050 Ti, and Cooler Master T2. I also added a Noctua 92mm fan to the back of the case in order to improve the airflow. Overall, I like this build. It's relatively quiet (the graphics card being the loudest), powerful enough for daily use, and can be easily upgraded in the future.
