Default Does this build look alright?

This build is for my dad. He will mainly be using it for space claim which is a 3d modeling program. I was going to see how the build works with the software first before he gets a gpu. Any suggestions on where I could save a couple bucks would be great. I picked that ssd mainly because of the free game that comes with it. If anyone can link me a cheap windows 7 that would be great too. Thanks in advance imgur: the simple image sharer

I don't see an SSD in that image.

Also, ditch the Rosewill PSU and get yourself a Seasonic 520w for the same price.

Build looks good to me, but you could also do away with the H87 board and get an H81 instead. WIll shave about 30 bucks off the build.

imgur: the simple image sharer Does this look better? Is that cpu good for the price or should I change it? Do you know where I could get a cheap windows 7 key? Thanks for the advice too.

Yes the CPU is just fine for the money.

You got lucky. Some people do sell legit keys, but most do not. You can try again, but I would just suck it up and buy a new copy of Windows.

Thanks for the advice but I'll take my chances on eBay. Its not that difficult to read customer reviews and figure out whether or not someones legit or a fraud.
