Pick out a better PSU. Something with an established name brand. You definitely don't need 600 watts either, 450-500 would be more than enough.

well by the sounds of it he wants to wire it to his tv so he prolly wants a media computer for the living room to hold all his music , videos and other stuff

as for the psu you only need 450-500max and so get a lower power , better branded one

and as for the video well as you said it aint for gaming so it doesnot matter

Good CPU, motherboard, RAM - I have all those same components except for a slightly better motherboard.

Everything else looks good though.
