Eg. movies, word, simple 2d gaming ( Bejeweled ) Just about anything my mother could torture it with...

I mean it does do what it does in an okay fashion right?

For an accelerator... Dam i hate them...

Anyways just light home use,
i've heard it lag's on HD videos is this correct?

Hmmm, if it's something you have already, it wouldn't be too bad.

But, I would not build a new one. The RAM is DDR2, more expensive, older, and slower. Same for the CPUs on the old 775 socket, there becoming more and more rare.

You could build a new Sandy Bridge with Intel integrated graphics. But, you'll find a AMD offers more for the money. CPU's aren't as fast as Sandy Bridge, but, mom won't need that speed and AMD integrated graphics have no issues with video & HD video.

Something like this will be very, very, nice:

+1 for the AMD or Sandybridge or even a Socket 1156 build

even if does start to lag, you can always add one of them htpc cards. like the 5450 n such. you can find one for about like 40 bucks or so. but you shouldnt have any problem at all with videos and 2d gaming.
