Making up a build for my friend just for school work and programming as well as some web browsing. The budget is $600 for everything (keyboard, monitor, etc). And smaller is better. How does this look? Thanks in advance for your input!

Later on I would recommend getting a decent GPU and SSD when you have the needed funds

I didn't realize they make Mini ITX boards for FM2+! I probably will go with an A10-7700K because there is a microcenter near by so I can get $40 off the mobo!

That would probably be a good idea but for that size I would HIGHLY recommend getting Wi-Fi built into the board
