Building a PC for my mother for christmas

I have the build here: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/nerdman88/saved/#view=nHgsYJ

I am on a fixed budget of $300-$350. The reason why I am needing advice is because she was on a Windows Vista machine and I am not sure what to buy.

looks ok for a general use PC, if she does not need a lot of space I'd get an SSD instead and maybe a cleaner looking and silent case like in this list.
