What do you guys think? I threw in the antec psu because I'm not sure I trust the one included with the case. This build is for my aunt who does basic internet, email and some flash games (farmville). I thought I'd give the apu a whirl, she may be interested in streaming media files if I show her how. I will be giving her a quote tomorrow and possibly ordering by tomorrow night. I really thought I'd be able to keep this build around $350ish but man are HDDs killing it, not to mention she'll need a new OS.

EDIT: Nothing is set in stone yet so I'm open for suggestions. Maybe even considering pointing her to Dell :(

i'm not really sure about that mother board but if you want to go for a cheaper one that has nice quality go for ASRock, or some good cheaper ASUS or Gigabyte

Yea I was questioning it too but it was part of the bundle. I've tried a few different combos and what not but I can't seem to get it any cheaper than this.

I saw this yesterday too and thought about it, but once I add an OS & gpu, it'll be around $500. I'm beginning to think that at this price, she might be better off going with a Dell for simplicity's sake and their support. It just sucks that her pc's so old I can't use much if anything from it.
