Hello, I am a new member here and am new to computer hardware as well, I was wondering if this build will work and if I have listed every single item that I need for a computer, please feel free to suggest any changes to the build, but the budget is $320
This computer will not be used for gaming, it will be mainly used to watch youtube videos and play simple browser games from time to time, the computer isn't for me, but the family computer.
Note: I plan to use the onboard graphics card of that motherboard because I don't believe a graphics card will make much of a difference on youtube videos (I may be wrong tho)

Well, the onboard Video has to preform the act of up-scaling and what not. Without GPU acceleration the duty falls on the CPU, which is a little weak. Also, HD flash content can be accelerated with the GPU provided recent drivers and a recent version of flash. In light of that I suggest a 785G based board instead, or for you to overclock that Semperon to a respectable 2.6 GHz.
