APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: ASAP BUDGET RANGE: $800~ can be upped

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: surfing the internet, office programs, Heavy multitasker

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, speakers, cpu gel

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD CPU & Nvidia card, case must not light up. 19inch monitors

MONITOR RESOLUTION: ? not used for gaming

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I am going to build a computer for my parents because their HP was cooked in a storm.
This system will never be used for gaming. Solitaire is about it for them. My step dad insists on a AMD processor and mother wants a
nvidia card like she has at work. (She mainly uses word, surfs: is not a workstation) OS is needed. Looking for a rig that can last 4-5 years doing these tasks. Thanks for your help.

I would go with a Lian-Li case, good quality, classy design. Their high end aluminum ones would kill your budget, but they have some low cost cases out there. If price is more of a concern, Go with something simple like an Antec Sonata.

The antec 300 combo actually comes out to be more than the sonata III, since there will be minimal heat in there the sonata III might be a better pick

its also one of the few cases with a preinstalled PSU that i will recommend as its a EA500 from antec.
