I want to build a little pc for my mom who only does Internet browsing, Microsoft word, excel and some photo editing programs as well as email and lots of web surfing and video watching. It's important that she can see the screen in at least 720p and that I can last here for at least 5 years... Here is the system and thanks in advance! The max budget is 650...
What you've got is pretty good, With parents and users with less strenuous needs, its better to focus on the things they'll notice, monitor, quietness, reliability, etc.
That being said, back not to long ago 4gb of RAM was considered crazy overkill for all but the most hardcore power users.
Anyway, ya that build will do and she'll appreciate you not spending her maximum, my gaming computer cost me $550 and it'll play anything I want it to at max settings......
at 1024x768 haha 13 inch monitors ftw!
Have a good one!
