Hello,
I am building a pc for my friend, and he wants to do light gaming and general use.
His budget is AT MOST £440.
This Pc costs £438.92
What do the experts think?

AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8Ghz
4gb ram
Ati Radeon HD5750 1024mb
Seagate barracuda 500gb hdd
Ocz stealthxstream 500w silent psu
Coolermaster Elite 330 with 120mm fan
Samsung 22x DVD+/_RW drive

Is this good?

That build should work fine. We need a little more information to offer more meaningful advice. First, could you define "light gaming"? What games will he be playing and what resolution does his monitor run at? It may be worth going with a triple-core CPU and upping the GPU to a 5770 depending on how much gaming performance he wants.
