Hows it going?

Im looking to build a desktop.

Main things i will use this desktop for is surfing the web and recording music on pro tools.

Heres is the not so awesome part. Im on a budget of 350 dollars.

Im sure its not going to get me anything amazing, but If you guys can help me of getting the best i can at that price range. It would be awesome.

Is there any recommendations you guys have?

I finally got the funds to buy the build but the RAM is out of stock. Would this work?

And the graphics card is aswell. im ordering everything from newwegg. Would you have another graphics card you can recomend?

Budget 400 dollars tops.
