General Build for Non-gaming friend.

Friend asked me to build her a sub $1000 computer mainly for science programs she has to run. Here is what I am thinking of doing. Looked at AMD but decided to stick with an intel build. Let me know what you think! There is no need for a GPU as she does not game.

Intel Core i5 2500K Quad Core Unlocked Processor LGA1155 3.3GHZ Sandy Bridge 6MB

ASUS P8Z68-V LX Z68 LGA1155 ATX 2PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 DDR3 SATA3 USB3.0 Audio Video CrossFire Motherboard

Corsair XMS3 CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-27 240PIN Memory Kit

Corsair Builder Series CMPSU-430CXV2 430W ATX Power Supply

Western Digital WD Caviar Black 750GB 7200RPM 64MB Buffer SATA3 3.5IN Internal Hard Drive

Crucial M4 SSD Micron C400 128GB 2.5IN Solid State Disk Flash Drive SATA3 6Gbps
