Im looking to build a new home pc. Just mainly be used for browesing the web, emails, pictures, online videos, dvd watching here & there. Looking for something I can always upgrade later if need be. Wont be doing any overclocking or anything like that.

Ive got about a $400.00 budget. I need Win os, mobo, cpu & ram. P/s if mine will not cut it. Looking to run windows 7.

Ive got the following

Thermaltake Tsunami Dream case
Thermaltake TR2-430NP P/S (430w)
Seagate barracudo 7200rpm HD (sata)

Geforce GT220 vid card (if would be needed for any reason.

For what ive been looking at.

Mobo Asus P8B75-M LXplus

Pcu intel i3-3235

ram kingston hyperX 8gb

ram corsair vengeance 8gb

Maybe I dont quite need this set up. If ya got other ideas or suggestions please let me know. Look forward to your opinions. If ya got a cheaper set up that will work for quite some time go ahead and let me know that to.

Thanks Mike
