My girlfriend's mother has tasked me with helping her purchase/build a new desktop. She has usable peripherals, and an OS.
She does a lot of browsing and various facebook related apps. She does do some light gaming as well as her grandchildren who visit often.
My budget is $330(ish)
EDIT - Updated with the new part list I have in mind. Dropped the G530 CPU, H61M mobo and XFX R7750 for an A-10 5800k/FM2-A55M mobo.
