I got asked by a family friend to build them a computer for normal use (watching movies, listening to music, going online, etc etc). I was looking at building them a 775 PC, but I then found a good deal on an i3 CPU and mobo.

775 build:




i3 build:



I am leaning towards the i3 build. They currently have a P4 pc.

775 is a dead platform, go with the i3. Looks good, only comment I will make is that the PSU is overkill. You could get a 450w with that setup, unless you are planning on getting a high end video card in the future. Great case choice BTW, I've build 3 systems with those, very good for the cost.

I know the PSU is overkill, but I rather get it just in case.
