This one is going to be for my mom. She wants a smaller computer and liked the Bitfenix Prodigy, so I went with that. Mainly need help selecting a power supply for the case.

What I've got so far. She probably doesn't need the i5 or the cooler for it, but she doesn't mind splurging a little bit.

Doesn't need an optical drive and I'm probably going to get her WIndows 8. I'd like a slightly nicer power supply.

What is the intended use of the PC?

i5 is too overkill for a mom.

I can't believe this. Liquid Cooling setup?? It feels like you are wasting your mom's money with **** like this.
Beans are good for you.

It's like you didn't read my post at all. I was considering the i3 depending on how much she felt like spending on it.

How does that A6 compare to the i3 3220?

That's also the PSU I was looking at. Mainly want something decent without excess cables.
