Hi, I've recently finished building a 500 dollar budget gaming PC for myself for the first time using a great guide I found on this website. My father asked me to build him a media system with a budget of around 300 dollars. The PC will be used to watch movies on a 42 Sony Bravia TV. Since its upstairs, we need a computer that also has wireless capabilities. It will also need a sizable hardrive to replace some older external hardrives we have. I'm skeptical if this build is possible, so I came on here to ask you guys. Please give me your opinion, or a recommended build. Again the budget is 300-350 dollars.


Thanks!

I have windows 7, thanks for the parts. I have a newbie question, wouldn't I need a decent graphics card if im going to be using a TV?

EDIT: The link for the mobo isnt working, could you please post a direct one?
