Looking to build a basic office computer - $400 tops

Hello... I have experience building PCs but I'm out of touch with recent technology. I am looking to build a low-mid end system that is just for office work, no multimedia. Looking for a quality mobo with integrated graphics, sound really doesn't matter much.

Looking to spend between $300 and $400 to put it together, without monitor/keyboard/mouse. It's for a 60 year old woman that just does office work.


APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: within a week

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: surfing at home, business work (excel/word), no gaming or movies

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard/OS/mouse/monitor

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD processor, any quality mobo (ASUS/gigabyte/etc..)

OVERCLOCKING: NO
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: NO

MONITOR RESOLUTION: She has a 17" lcd and is happy with it

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Just need a high quality dependable work/office machine, no gaming or multimedia. Need it last 4-5 years so quality is important.

    my build without the monitor is only $349 , but if its in the budget Id switch to the case /psu combo that megamanx suggested which adds about $30
