I want to build a PC for my little brother. He will mainly use it for internet surfing, movies and a bit of gaming, but no games that are really demanding. So a dedicated graphics card is unnecessary. My budget is maximum $600, the cheaper the better of course and would prefer to use the site newegg only. So far I have picked a couple of parts except the motherboard. Are these current parts compatible and can you please help me find a motherboard that is good enough for this build?

Pretty sure that's all the parts necessary for a build, except for the motherboard. Are these parts compatible? Feel free to make any adjustments and if you can find a similar per-built PC with a similar price that would also be great.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
