So I'm trying to build a budget PC for my parents, They will only use it for web browsing and streaming videos. This is my first try building one, another reason I'm trying to go cheap in case I screw up. I know these parts aren't the greatest, but it's not like they'll be playing games or rendering videos.

I want to know if these parts don't have any issue with compatibility and if i should invest in a separate PSU or the case + PSU is alright.

Also, this is probably a stupid question, but how do I check that I will have all the cables and screws required?

Approximate Purchase Date: In 2 to 3 days

Budget Range: Around 200 dollars.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: It will only be used for web browsing and streaming shows.
