Cheap Build

I'm making a build for my dad, he wants a cheap computer. He won't be doing much, just surfing the internet and playing some very light games.
Is there anything that is bad in this build or something I should change.

Depending on what he considers 'light' gaming, everything looks fine. Don't forget the O/S.

I like djangoringo's suggestion of going with an APU system better. If dad wants a bit more 'ooph' in his system, you could always up the APU to one of the A10s. Those quad cores come with an on-die GPU that can actually game.

I would recommend getting the Intel build that djangoringo posted. It's only $30 more than the APU build he posted, but it performs much better.
