This build video is for Reddit user TheCenterOfEnnui, who asked the /r/buildapc community for help building a computer with his 12 year-old son. His original post was here:


As the OP did not have any experience building a computer, I offered to help by creating a build video tailored to the parts he would be using. I'm happy he accepted my offer, and this video is the result of that.

I purchased the exact same part list that he will be using with his son, and filmed my build step by step. Some of the things he will run into, I ran into during filming (like short power supply cables). Hopefully this video can serve as a guide if they run into any difficulties.

I will be auctioning off this completed build with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit Charity:water, a non-profit organization that provides clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries.

The part list was chosen by TheCenterOfEnnui with the help of the /r/buildapc community. There was a fixed budget of $500 including OS. The build was for his son, who enjoys gaming. You can find the part list with current pricing here:
