Hello, I want to make a Christmas present but I don't have any idea on which parts I can rely on.

The build will be connected to a 37 inch TV through HDMI. It should, without problem, run videos at 1080p video from Internet and also local files And also some Web browsing, nothing more.

I've got already Keyboard, mouse and os

I don't know if it is better to go with an Intel or with an APU AMD

Yep. OP should consider throwing something like $20 at it.

Could I get something "better" adding 50$?

I'm not sure how the TV stuff works, wether the TV runs it or not.. But my i3-4005U (Intergrated graphics) on a computer atleast can't go higher than 900p, I doubt a GPU on this budget can...
