New Computer for my dad

So my father got a new computer very recently on sale for 500 CAD ( tax not included ) at a Best Buy

http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/asus-asus-m32bf-desktop-pc-brushed-grey-amd-a10-7800-2tb-hdd-12gb-ram-r7-graphics-windows-10-m32bf-ca005t/10394140.aspx?path=61271d810bd4928689bc552b763c5e4een02

I was thinking of a build to match or even do much better. I have a spare SSD so I thought I could put it in a newly built PC for him. Space is also very important and he was complaining about not enough HDMI ports so I thought building one would be a good idea. If anyone has any good part list to top this for a good price, please let me know, thanks. If not I'll just add the SSD in the current PC

His use for the PC is just normal use, browsing, videos. No games and he also edits using Pinnacle Studio quite often

I don't think what he got would be a bad choice for his needs. (See Pinnacle Studios requirements at the bottom of the page: http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us/Products/studio/)

You can add the SSD to the existing PC he got from BestBuy and install the OS on it to provide faster load times.

Also, if he would prefer multiple HDMI outputs (current one seems to have 1) than a dedicated graphics card is advised. Or connect the 2nd display with RGB cable instead.
