Default Input needed on a media based pc for mother.

Building my mother a new AMD media center pc. - AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor 2.9GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor ADX245OCGQBOX - RAIDMAX Typhoon ATX-312WS Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - ASUS EAH4350 SILENT/DI/512MD2(LP) Radeon HD 4350 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card - MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

She has a 40gb western digital hdd, I know that won't do but she'll have hang on tight until I can cough up 50.00 for a new hdd for her.
She will also be using a 430watt PSU that she has had for a year now.

I designed this layout for her because she is a teacher and now her job requires to medium to heavy slide show jobs or to be using ulead 10 to make movies for her english class she teaches without problems.
The only reason I choose a AMD athlon ii x2 because I think it should handle all of her needs and then some.

What do you all think of this new build ? everything should arrive by next wednesday.

Just make sure the psu is new enough to plug into the mobo... It needs 24 pins and the 4 pin cpu plug.
