Depends by what you define as a "good build". This would be a cheap everyday sort of computer build. What are you wanting to do with this build? Surf the web? Word processing? Gaming? Movies? If you want to direct your build for a specific purpose I can help you. Regardless of the build though, I would get at the very least 1Gb of RAM.
