My friend needs this build for doing schoolwork, Minecraft (preferably with shaders), Roblox, and Flightgear. I created this list, what do you guys think? His budget is around $500.

go with 2 sticks of 4 gb ram that way you can take advantage of dual channel ram for better performance but other then that it looks good
