Hey guys,

Decided to attempt picking parts for the first time on my own so I have most likely screwed up somewhere. Can someone give some feedback on this selection? Trying to do a cheaper build for my sister for just basic office work and general use. No gaming will be done except for facebook games. In her words she wants something relatively fast but doesn't want to spend much money. What do you think?

What is the reason for the changes to the HDD? I understand the motherboard but I am unsure of the HDD they seem to be fairly equiv. Is it just a matter of a better brand?

I swapped out the MB, HDD and picked a different case which has USB 3.0. Here is the updated link http://pcpartpicker.com/user/sulbien/saved/2EmX

Does anyone else have any opinions on it? Looking to buy the parts ASAP so I could use any feedback before it is too late.
