Default $300~ Budget Build

First time build for my cousin and they need a new computer. Nothing fancy, as basic as it can get with some light gaming so onboard is fine and if anything upgrade later. So far I have this, through newegg combo savings etc. At most probably have the final build be around $350 Right now the total is about $262

Thanks, I have that in my current main computer. Works wonders for almost everything I throw at it. May not run max everything but more than what I really demand.
