Hey guys just wondering does all this go together? because my grandma wants me to build her a computer because right now she has a dell with only 256 gb ram and 2.3ghz processor
Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147075
Mobo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128342
CPU- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103234
Ram- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145184
HD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136075
CD Drive- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106281

Alright please let me know what you think. Will this dominate for just going online and paying bills AND getting recipes thats all she wants to do she just wants to go fast.

Well if the build is just for those things, could probably just buy an already built pc instead of dealing with building it. Would be more simple. I bought a mini case computer that had a Q6600 in it and came with a Dell 24" monitor for my gma and all she does is play pogo and my gpa does guitar music programs on it.

i will get the name of it for you if you'd like. but, you can get the monitor seperate, its just a combo deal.
