Looking to build a new computer for my brother. He has $400 to spend on this entire rig. He won't be gaming yet (we will buy a gpu later down the road) so on-board video is fine, I just don't know which motherboards have the best on-board. Can you guys suggest one? Also he already has a windows 7, a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers. Just the tower is needed!

This the best I could do. Everything you need, my only concern would be the quality of the PSU.
Comes to 376$ before shipping. Anybody else feel free to evaluate.
This but with this burner

Since this one has free shipping and will save you $5.

I added another 90mm fan to mount in the front and along with the DVD burner recommended with no shipping..... With shipping to where I live(Central NC) this totals up to $394.08.
Man, I don't think your gonna get any better than that.
Thanks

Also this build with the extra fan looks amazing, don't think you could get much better than that.

Your welcome. I'll have to keep this bundle(or similar) in mind for the future. I've got an uncle that may want a budget pc, and something like this would be perfect.

Another suggestion, not sure what OPs bro will fully be doing with this PC, but he could get a free distro of linux and use the cash from the windows towards his rig

plus windows 7(actually, if he's not gaming just save $100 and use Linux...), and a cheap 60 or 64gb SSD if he doesn't need much space, or a 250-750gb HDD for around the same price if he does need space.

Not enough money, save $200+ otherwise its pointless and non upgradable.
