Hey, I'm new here and need some help. I'm trying to build a new computer, not for super gaming or anything, just for everyday stuff. I'm making it a dual core with 4GB of ram.

This is a link to my build:

I have everything picked out, except a power supply and hard drive (nothing important ;) )

Any suggestions, hopefully keeping this build under $350

Also, I'm gonna use ubuntu and old mouse/keyboard/monitor, so I don't need those things.

Any help is appreciated :)

That'll be hard with any new hard drive. They're running $150.

Dual Channel does not offer much of an improvement. There's an increase in performance but you won't notice it.

It really depends on your mem slots. If it's only 2 like the mobo i posted then 1 single 4gb would be best so that you can still up to 8gb.

With 4 mem slots, then 2x2x2x2 would be good too.
