I'm assuming you want to use it for computer gaming? That is a really bottom tier build and I don't think you will be able to play any new games, and the ones you can play will need to be on low-medium settings at best. I think this would be a decent web browsing/netflix machine, but hardly for gaming. I recommend waiting until you can expand your budget, at least $600.

That would be ideal for a home cinema system but not for gaming I'm afraid as Aerys stated. What is your absolute max budget?

If you had $400 something like this would be capable of playing games quite well I think - http://pcpartpicker.com/p/XVBKkL  Needs an OS though.

Excellent job jonuk76,

 

If you want some extra speed and are not too worried about space for now then I would ditch the 1TB drive and spend the left over money on this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147247&cm_re=120gb_ssd-_-20-147-247-_-Product

 

And then buy a larger storage drive at a later date. Just remember that if an SSD pops then it is gone for good so be sure that if you do have a 2 drive system to make you Documents, Pictures and Music folders on the standard HDD and redirect the folders in the navigation pane.

 

I lost my entire music collection to an SSD once :'(
