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).

sony cd-rw (30)
sempron 2400+ (67)
Saphirre 9250 (39)
dfi mobo socket A (46.50)
Seagate 80gb SATA hdd (62.50)

but if you don't have any experience with sata, then:
seagate IDE hdd (61)

if you can push the budget:
corsair 1gb ram

if not:
$41.74 geil ram 512mb

I don\'t play for fun, I play to win and winning is fun.

Just look in the paper and see if there is any p-3's for sale,It will save money since they don't need anything big.
