Maybe this is overkill. Choose a case of your choice and you can reuse the HDD from the HP.

Aught replace the VP-450 with a CX-430.


Its $8 more and ewww corsair


CWT > FSP
CX430 > VP-450
And, for powersupplies, Corsair > Antec on average.

I built this for my girlfriends mom not too long ago. She doesn't game, or have any intentions of overclocking. Just over 500$. Coming from experience, Intel HD4600 is pretty dang decent. I feel like it would have to be able to run second life. You probably don't really need a GPU. If you want to spend the extra money anyway you could get one though. Also you should put an SSD in it.


This is pretty solid. Maybe a cheaper case.

There's nothing wrong with Corsair.
