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

    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:
