New CPU and Motherboard for Mom's Computer

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to get an idea of what everyone thinks about this deal and for the purpose of casual gaming that my little sister likes to do.

Anyone's input is greatly appreciated.

Pair this with 2x8GB 3200 RAM and you will have a nice system for the majority of people. While 16GB of RAM is a lot for casual people RAM isn't really expensive now, unless you want to save money. In that case 2x4GB will do as well. Get a cheap TLC drive and the system is basically finished.

Edit: to save money you can also get an A320 board and a 3000G. The 3000G is a dual core with HTT/SMT and will serve casual users just fine. If I were to build my mum and sister a system this is what I would get them as they will never know the difference.
