I need to build a computer for under $400. I will primarily be surfing the web, doing lots of Microsoft Office work, and watching 1080p videos. I will occasionally be playing games, and would like to be able to play future games like the new Sim City, etc., on my TV at 1080p with a decent framerate. I will *probably* being using this as an HTPC. I'm not thinking I need a monitor at this point. This will be in replacement of my 27" iMac with a core i5.
Is the following build a decent one, or do you guys have alternative recommendations that would be better?
Split between Newegg and Amazon, it comes out to be about $350.
Honestly, I almost always use the computer for web surfing, office, and watching video. Just want the option of being able to play future games, like the new SimCity, if I get spare time . Since I'll be hooking it up to my HD TV, it would need to have HDMI out and be OK at 1920x1080.
