Default Review this PC please!

Hey I have to build a computer for this guy who will be using it in his deli to run 4 monitors. Basically each monitor would be running a powerpoint presentation to show different menus. This machine doesn't need too much, just looking for something cheap, but capable of supporting 4 monitors... so here are the specs I put together, let me know what you think...

Barebone - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...49693&CatId=31
Ultra nForce 680i LT SLI Socket 775 Barebone Kit - Pre-Assembled, Ultra Black Defender ATX Mid-Tower Case, 400 Watt XVS Modular Power Supply
CPU - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...545&CatId=3587
Intel Celeron Dual Core E1200 Processor HH80557PG025D - 1.60GHz, 512KB Cache, 800MHz FSB, Allendale, Dual-Core, OEM, Socket 775, Processor
HDD - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...749875&CatId=8
Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 40GB Hard Drive - 7200, 2MB, SATA-300, OEM
RAM - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...808&CatId=1554
Crucial 1024MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory
Video (x2) - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...056&CatId=1558
PNY GeForce 8500 GT / 512MB DDR2 / SLI Ready / PCI Express / Dual Link DVI / VGA / HDTV / Video Card
$64.99 x 2 = $129.98
CD Rom - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...205935&CatId=4
Lite-On PLDS DVD-ROM/CD-RW Retail Combo Drive - 52x32x CD-R/RW, 16x DVD-ROM, Black

Current Total: $419.93

I didn't really look elsewhere besides tigerdirect. I mean, most of the parts are pretty cheap here, so saving 3 dollars on a hard drive, or cd rom isn't going to be much of a difference. The big things are the barebone kit and 2 vid cards.

What do you guys think tho? Unless you can find something substantially cheaper, do you think these parts are alright to handle what I need?

The 780G integrates the HD 3200 graphics processor, which paired with a HD 3000 series GPU, can run up to four monitors.

This is from Newegg.com.
