Simple Home Computer

Hey guys, I was asked to build a computer for my aunt and uncle. Not something big, or fancy, and not for gaming. Just a basic home computer that my aunt can use to get online, check email, manage photos, etc. I just finished building my gaming computer and now they want me to build then one haha. I just wanted your opinion on this set up. I am assuming they already have a monitor, keyboard/mouse, and speakers. This is what I have so far. Tell me what you think.

The DVD burner:

The Case:

The hard drive:

The Power Supply:

The Ram:

The Mother Board:

The Processor:

    Swap the HDD for a samsung F3, its bigger, cheaper, and faster

    If you are going to stick to an IGP dont use an intel build, this AMD config will save you a bit and has much better graphics capabilities and a nice triple core processor

    That PSU is an exceptionally weak unit, 16A between the 12V rails? Get a corsair 400CX, its cheaper after MIR and significantly better with 30A on a single rail

    also your ram link doesnt work, so if you were considering DDR2 ram you can get an AM2+ equivalent of the board i posted if DDR3 would put you over budget.
  5. Alright thanks. Yea I wasn't sure whether to go with an intel or an amd. My computer has an amd quad core, but then again we're talking a gaming pc rather than a basic one lol.
