Default Pc for My Aunt and Uncle

I was shooting for $300 to $350. Thay aren't gamers or anythiglike that and are basically going to use the PC for email and maybe a few kids software things... Stupid stuff that I don't want to touch, but I'll build the PC.
What components should I go with?

pick up a case at your local store with a power supply, buying online isn't worth it (shipping).
