My uncle wants a new computer for as cheap as possible and I said I would build him one which I have done before. Only thing he needs now is the tower. I chose the parts and want feedback if I picked the right parts. Every part has a 4 or 5 star rating so they should be fine but I want to know if there is any improvements that can be made.

Not good at all. Ditch the PSU and look for Antec, corsair, pc power and cooling, silver stone, and ocz for quality PSU's. For $300 budget your going to get a pretty much crap PC.

By the way, that psu is horrible. Don't use it whatever you do.

He doesn't do any gaming? Here's $295 after $25 MIR.





To be honest, that's about as cheap as its going to get... You can take out a ram stick if you want.
