Aye it was said that I was overgunning the power supply, but I also mentioned that there is the possibility of upgrading in the future to include a graphics card.

Im sure the system will work, but it is far from my prefferred specs as im more into gaming and require a more involved setup that the basic rig im making here. just finding it a bit tricky designing a build for someone else as I have to kind of second guess everything to cover all the bases

What im trying to do really is make a rig that isnt a gaming system or high end in any way, but that is also easily upgraded with the minimum of cost if/when the time comes.
