Need Build Help! $700 daily use PC

Hi, I recently built my own gaming pc for $1500 and its AMAZING. My dad was like obsessed with the fact that I "built" a computer. His iMac recently broke and he was looking to go in and get another. I stopped him right there and said, "Hey dad, why dont you just let me build you a PC!?" So thats where i am now. I told him that i could build one for under $700. So heres what i need: - Speed (I would hope for an i5 processor like the 4670) - Non-gaming (This is my dad we're talking about, no graphic card needed) - Wifi connection (I need a wireless wifi card) - Windows 7 (Dad's choice) - 500gb storage

Thanks for all the help in advance!

Wait, does he need a monitor (the iMac is an all-in-one)?

This is slightly over budget, because I chose a 24" monitor over smaller, cheaper alternatives. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

It's a bit overbudget. The case is Mini-ITX so it looks very cool and compact. The motherboard has Wi-Fi included.
