Default Build for Work question

hey guys, I've got a quick question regarding a build I'm looking into for a manager at work. Mainly using it for a program called Retail Pro, word processing etc;. He's giving me something around the $900 mark. The main complaint is the durability of his computers and how slow they are so I figured I'd go for it and just do something with an i5? I just picked the cheapest GFX card available, I don't think he needs anything too special.

Playing around on NCIX I came up with this:

[Bundle deal]
Motherboard: MSI P55-CD53 P55 ATX DDR3 Motherboard
Processor: Intel i5 750
[/Bundle deal]

Memory: G.Skill F3-10666CL9D-4GBNQ PC3-10666 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1333 Dual Channel
Video: MSI GeForce 8400GS 567MHZ 512MB 1.6GHZ DDR2
Heatsink: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro REV.2
PSU: OCZ StealthXStream OCZ500SXS 500W
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB 7200RPM 32MB
Case: Antec 300 Mini
OS: Windows 7 Pro

It's gonna run about $913.18CAD after assembly pre-tax.
First of all, will this system work? If so / not, is there anything that should be replaced / removed / added? Cheaper the better of course.
