Default First PC

Hey guys, my mom's laptop recently died and she wanted me to get her a desktop. All she uses it for is Wordpad and web browsing. She dosent watch youtube to often, and she never streams like 1080p video. I went online and couldent find anything that was cheap, but what she wanted, so I decided to attempt my first build. I have taken a computer apart and put it back together, but I never built one from scratch. So if you guys wouldent mind looking at the parts I chose, and giving me advice, I would appreciate it.
System Setup:
Motherboard: ECS H61H2-I3 (v1.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

CPU:Amazon.com: Intel Celeron G1610 2.60GHz LGA 1155 Processor BX80637G1610: Electronics

Power Supply (its built in the case): Amazon.com: MI-008 Tower Black P4 Chassis with 250W Itx Psu+sata Power Supply: Electronics

HDD: Amazon.com: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA III 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive - WD5000AAKX: Electronics

RAM:http://www.crucial.com/store/partspe...KIT25672BA1067


and thats about it. Thanks in advance for taking time to look at this.

That motherboard won't fit in that case.

CPU is fine.

Get these parts instead.
Newegg.com - ASRock B75M-DGS R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS - Newegg.com
Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Newegg.com
TOPOWER TP-1687BS-400 Black / Silver SECC 0.8mm MicroATX Desktop Computer Case 400W SFX Power Supply - Newegg.com

Better board, better RAM, better case/PSU combo.

If you can wing it, I suggest grabbing the Pentium instead.
