My System Specs

Default

If you're going onboard GFX, I'd strongly recommend going AMD vice Intel. FM1 bundles are getting few and far between but here's a pair that should work together.

AMD A6-3500 APU W/ AMD Radeon 65XX HD GFX Triple Core Processor Socket FM1 2.1GHZ 3MB 65W Retail Box

ASRock A75M-HVS mATX FM1 AMD A75 FCH DDR3 1PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 1PCI SATA3 HDMI D-Sub USB3.0 Motherboard

I think you will be happier with something like an FM2 APU from AMD. It will be far more futureproof than that pentium cpu and well worth the extra 40 dollars over the intel dual core you spec'd. It has better graphics too.
Ninja'd!!! :) (Although my suggestion would save him money rather than being more expensive).

Or, no matter how much I hate win8, you can't beat this for a complete system with legit OS......
