Oppinions on new system

Hi there,

I need to build a system for a friend on an extremely tight budget. Just wanted to check compatibility and see if you guys have any suggestions of exchanges I should make. I will list the components below.

CPU: FX-4100 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103996
CPU cooler: Xigmatek praeton low profile. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233103
Case: 1life with 500w PSU incorporated
ram: Corsair value select 1333 mhz ddr3
HDD: WD caviar blue 500 gb 16 mb sata III
CD drive: Cheapest I can find
MOBO: ASUS M5A78L-M LX AMD760G (780L) SKAM3+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131795

This will be use for productivity reasons only, it will not play any games at all, just schedule keeping and browsing.
I need to buy this pretty soon so if you could please give suggestions I would really aprecciate it. :bounce:
