Need Windows 7 too, so add ~$90

EDIT: You should link that mouse/keyboard combo for him, since that is what is saving him money in your build

I agree on the x3 as well, its on sale right now, so why not!

Whoops, thought I added win 7.
Link to keyboard/mouse combo.

Pretty similar to OP, because it is already pretty good.
I changed the display because I prefer LED backlights, and it has two HDMI inputs vs single dvi of the OP display.

Thanks everyone. I switched out the PSU for the Antec 350 watt and traded the keyboard/mouse for the Gigabyte combo. Got the total down to $583.12 shipped.

If you're talking about the supercombo DIY kit, that is a ripoff as with every one. See the link in sig.

The newest revision is better but to me it is still underwhelming for ~$612.

Uhh that PSU isn't...
Look, it will work fine for what you are building, but you will have absolutely no upgrade path. The basiq will be hotter, louder, and less efficient than the corsair.
As a compromise, would you at least get this xigmatek?
It is more efficient and has a higher capacity then both the corsair and antec. It is not the highest quality PSU but neither is the antec.

Don't get me wrong, antec makes great PSU's(or else I wouldn't buy one) but the basiq line is just that, basiq.

Maybe put together a Llano build for him since he will only be internet surfing and light gaming.
Or if he doesn't want a Llano build, The Athlon II will serve him well, But we all know he will probs get into gaming so 880G is not the best choice for that, 970A is better choice, Especially if he ends up getting into gaming, That way he go upgrade to bulldozer if he wants to in the future.

Adjust the balance in parts choice and split the retailers (i.e. different American retailers) and try this instead, you can get much better parts for price:

DRAPER10 coupon - $10 off [Superbiiz]
This is $613 shipped

For almost $1 less, you can get a top end quad core APU build with excellent graphics, in a small form factor (less desk space), 1080p monitor (smaller, but still 1080p), 1TB HDD, 60GB solid state drive (for extra fast boot), and Windows 7, all within a price that is almost $1 less than the $614 shipped (or plus shipping?) Athlon II x2 build in the original post, that aside from taking up more desk space, has inferior graphics. Also a mere $1 more than the second build posted by the other person, with the Athlon II x3.

That's nice but he specifically said it has to be that case.
Impressive that you fit a SSD in there though, wow.

I didn't do multiple sources cause i figured he wouldn't want the hassle. You're right though, shopping around is the best way.
I would've went with a smaller display too, but again i figured he picked a 23 because he wanted a 23.

Best deal right here, I would go with this.
