    Yeah looks like a good budget build, though you dont really need a 500w PSU.

    Budget build are all well and good but i cant stress enough to have a good quailty PSU. They dont cost much more and when budget PSU dies and it will die it can take the other parts with making 1 big waste of money. May i suggest something like a corsair 450w perfect with good RMA if neeed.

    Excellent little mobo: just built one into a media center (watch on Home Theatre forum for build review). Find a few more pounds and marry it with an E5500. 2Gb is adequate and you can always pop in another 2 when it starts to labour.

    This graphics card will meet all her needs, drive her tv via hdmi and free up the cpu. XFX HD 5450 650MHz 512MB DDR3 HDMI DVI VGA PCI-E.. | Ebuyer.com Don't forget to buy the hdmi cable and a kettle lead.

    Not convinced about psus taking out other components: I've replaced 3 in my life and have never had any other component fail. 350W will be enough.

    W7HP recommended.

    Its a fact not a theroy, a lesser psu does not have in built protection and can take out other components. I fix about 5 pc per month due to poor PSU causing mutliple problems.

    No, awful. You're looking at around £30 for a decent 300-400W PSU.
