Hey everyone,

I'm looking to build a decent windows 7 desktop for my parents. I want to spend about $350 including tax but not the OS. Here is what I have in mind. Any input would be great.

Motherboard:

CPU:

The rest of the parts don't matter too much. How do these ones sound? She will only be using it for general use/web browsing.

I think it looks fine. The only thing I would highly suggest is upgrade that A4 to an A8. It's $10 off making it a $45 upgrade from what you chose. Just remember, the A8 is still only about equivalent CPU performance to a Pentium class CPU. I would really try to squeeze that in there. It would give a little more life out of it later down the road.
