Grandpa's want PC's too!

Okay, so. I am starting a small hobby/business type thing where I am allowing people to purchase custom computer builds through me at a reasonable price. I was telling my grandfather about this and what do you know? Apparently he was in need of a new computer! I told him I will do this free of charge, but of course he wants to support me. I do want to do a good job for him and at a VERY low cost. He only needs the PC itself because he already has a lot of the necessary accessories. He only plans to do some minor browser gaming, (facebook), and streaming video such as Youtube and movies. I have a build and yes it's probably overkill for what he needs it for, but I want it to perform and to do its job well. What do you guys think?

Yeah sorry about my dead link. Your build is exactly what I wanted although I already have an OS so it's un-necessary. Thanks for the help!
