Long time builder, but first time using this site and it has been a while since I've done any research on parts. I'm building this computer for my parents who need a new desktop for everyday browsing, streaming and general daily/office use. I understand this may be slight overkill for their needs, but I'm fine with it as long as I can upgrade down the line if need be. Could use your thoughts, I'm very out of date when it comes to parts.
I've made a slight edit after receiving feedback. Thanks for the help. I am no longer going with an SSD as I don't think my parents will get much use from it (added nuance for them to learn about using the other HD for files). I've also removed the CPU fan after realizing the CPU comes with one.
