isnt that CPU a bit high for her needs? Thats more of a gamers/3D Graphical CPU, could get a cheaper desktop with a slightly lower end CPU.
But if you think she should have that, then i say go for it.

Instead of her buying one there, why not you order the parts, build it, then ship it to her.
It might be cheaper, and better.

lol...we all do that hehe
i dont, but theres about 2% of the time when i dont read the whole thing, but thats only when im on a time limit.
