I would change the motherboard and CPU. Ditch the graphics card and run onboard. Since your mom isn't gonna be running any games other than what comes with windows... which can be dealth with on a I3

I would do some shopping for a pre built from Lenovo or such.
Your budget of $340 is probably not realistic.

Your original build used a logisys case and psu that is cheap.
Be aware that logisys psu's are considered tier 5( not recommended, replace asap) on this list:

For web browsing and such, you do not need a discrete graphics card like a 7750; that id for gamers(you perhaps?)
You will also need to budget for an os which you did not include.

You also do not need a quad core cpu.
The Intel G530 would be fine. $50
Any socket 1155 motherboard will do. $50
Newegg has a corsair CX430 on sale for $17!! Good psu too.
A cheap case is OK $25
OS $80
I don't think I would buy a refurb hitachi drive. Their reliability is not the best:
