He dosn't want to game end of. I am guessing you want this system just for email, web access and office, correct?

You don't need to spend anywhere near $700 for a computer which could do this kinda stuff.

I'm getting the hardware that will let me upgrade it to a gaming computer in the future.

Will this RAM fit into my Motherboard? The RAM says it has 240 pins and when I looked at the specs of the motherboard it said it had 24 power pins which I don't know what that means.

It'll work... 24 Pins is what the PSU goes into the board

I'm 90% sure this Hard Drive will work with my Motherboard.

Will it work?

Also, what is a TB? The hard drive I want says the capacity is 1TB.

Well, here's another one with 500GB but it's only $10 cheaper so would you recommend me getting this one instead?

That's an external drive.. that's for portable storage.. I think the extra $10 for the 1TB Internal drive is worth it
