Daughter's build. I have a 4 year old that seems to monopolize the home PC so I managed to score a pink case. I figured my wife would have loved it but it turns out my daughter is more enamoured and therefore will be seeing her own PC. I want a geek in the family that I can relate to. Below is just a start. As I find the additional parts and make proper upgrades, acquire sleeving, lighting, etc. It's going to start with an AMD APU and Black coloured Motherboard. The rest I want to TRY to get in pink or accented.

You need to add a SHOTGUN to that hardware list, Dad. She's a cutie!

Clixxer that's a custom Thermaltake A31

Super Dave, that's not necessary. I'll take to knife sharpening when I meet the boys.
Oh, and my daughter seems to think it's good to invite everyone to her birthday party in the summer. The UPS delivery guy was hugged and invited. The hug was not the best because she bagged him attempting to hug him.

Okay, now I figured I'd have scored a A10, but it seems the seller wants what they paid for it. Which was more money than what I could pick it up for at the store. Looks like I may be looking at doing that.

I may have a different set of RAM to use with it as well. Waiting to also get some custom sleeved cables as well in the pink. Still need to look at a paint for the plastic and coating the yellow and interior has some blue plastic components I need to get as well.

Love that picture of her. She's excited about this and it shows.

Here's a little sign to post on the door,..........

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Aww man, that is so adorable. You know there are hello kitty cases? But they might not be the best quality.
