Hi everyone, recently a friend of mine started asking for my help to build a new pc (since I already did it a couple of times), however he wants a low end, he doesn't game on it except some really really old games, nothing that requires a mid end pc anyway...

Anyway, I'm unfamiliar with low (or low to mid) end PC hardware, I'm afraid of buying crap pieces or brands, so I thought I better be asking here.

The budget is around 400-500 dollars, not counting mouse/keyboard/os...

He specifically needs 500 gb of storage because of work stuff, everything else is not relevant...

Just a quick build.

Probably get it lower with Black Friday deals. Should be fine and he could even venture into new games at medium settings.

Checking these right now, thank you :)

Also, I don't live in America, so no discounts for me, but it doesn't matter that much.
