I would appreciate feedback on the following build for my other: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/eKfO

Approximate Purchase Date: 8/16/12 evening, cst

Budget Range: Sub $450 budget

System Usage from Most to Least Important: This will be usd for facebook, solitaire, and microsoft word.

Are you buying a monitor: I have an old http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... which will be used. 1680x1050 resolution.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes. I have selected 64 bit win 7 on pcpartpicker, I assume this will work.

Overclocking: No

Additional Comments: I plan to build my mother a new computer for her use at home. She is a school teacher who is about to start back to school, so time is of the essence for me here. I will be ordering components tomorrow and build the weekend after-next. Please review and let me know if you see any red flags or any better deals. I've built about 5 computers over the last 10 years and feel comfortable building them, but I do not stay current with parts.

Any alternate suggestions to save money or get better value for the money would be appreciated. Her computer which is currently having issues was purchased from a store and I really don't want to figure out what is wrong with it.

Any suggestions for a comparable 100 GB SSD would be appreciated.
