Working on my first micro build for my wifes home office computer. Will be used for LIGHT photo editing, word processing, web browsing, and the occasional HD movie watching. I was wondering if I could get a few opinions on my build so far and is there anything I missed/overkilled as far as these small machines go.

Total budget ?
You might want an i3-3220, lower power consumption, better performance.
Also a psu from another brand, that one isn't good, like corsair, antec, there's an antec neo 620 for 30$ after mir on newegg, that one is really good, made by seasonic.
The i3-3225 has the intel hd 4000 graphics which can play any bluray movie either 3D or 2D, it has even support for 4k videos, it's a good htpc cpu, with a good
psu, it's overkill the psu, but it's cheap on newegg, it's at a good price, made by seasonic.
This included a bluray drive.
