Monitor Resolution: 1600x1200, 1680x1050 Most likely these are lower
Basically, I am building this for friend, she desparately needs one since her old one crapped out on her, she doesn't want to buy a premade pc so I am trying to assemble one for her. Thanks for your input and time.
You should review the budget machine that toms built recently for their systembuilder marathon. You could carefully pick a few different parts to save some money. If she isn't gaming then you could save a bit on the graphics card too. Otherwise a $400 budget is real difficult and the prebuilt machines can reach this price point easier than you can.
^ The RAM and the HDD are fine, but am not sure how that video card would hold for gaming,... but if it is going to be casual gaming at lower resolutions at Medium settings, then it might suffice,... But the 5670 would last her long,...
