My new low end gaming/ office PC what are your thoughts?

I need some opinions on this build- http://pcpartpicker.com/p/33Plt

It is for a family member that is going to use it pretty heavily everyday but for only light gaming and high multi-tasking work. Is this sufficient enough and what improvements can I make to help the cost and efficiency?

    I just changed one thing here, all I did was select dual channel RAM, its like $4 more and you'll have better performance.
  3. Yea I was just looking into duel channel RAM instead of the single channel thanks for the input!

    thats really good , i recommend the exact same thing too , but i would just get a seagate 1tb or WD 1tb , i wouldn't get hybrids! or get a 32-64GB with a 500GB second HDD if ssd is necessary ! or upgrade when i had some money !

    also about ram, why not a corsair vengeance ? or at least Kingston hyper x rams, they're also even cheaper ,
