Default Thoughts of this build?

Hi, I'm building another system for a friend he didn't really say an exact budget price so I thought I'd keep it around mid-range.

The i5 is quicker and only a few more pound expensive.

Amazon has the combo for 165 making it only 10 more.

Yes, relatively.

Simple as going to Amazon and typing i5 4440 and Asus H81 in the search box.
