So my cousin is getting money for Christmas to build a PC. I am guessing he will get $500-750 to build it. After Christmas I am going to drive him to Fry's and help him buy parts. He will use it for playing games (minecraft, mostly), doing school work, and recording videos. So here is where I need help: if you can make a PCPartPicker list for me to get some ideas, it would be appreciated.
He already has a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I know he wants windows 10 on it, and his favorite color is blue if that can get put in there somewhere.
Anything is an upgrade as he is coming from an AMD-based HP laptop.
