Hi everyone i am building a HTPC for my mother. It is going to mainly be used to watch movies on and browse the web. I am looking for one under 350. Also i put one together on pcpartpicker and would like opinions.

Looks like a decent build. More than enough to handle media playback/web surfing.

Alright sounds good i know next to nothing about AMD processors. So i wanted to make sure it was a decent one before i jumped on it.

Sorry for the late reply.

I would get this PSU for $25 after rebate:

8GB memory is more than you need...you could easily do 4 GB and save about $20.

The case is somewhat subjective, but that looks gigantic compared to what you need. One of these would be significantly more compact in the same price range:
