Currently, my grandmother is rocking some old core two duo. It gets web browsing done, but that's about it. I decided that I would save up and build her a new up-to-date system. Her old tower is really big and heavy, so she can't move it around. So, the form factor has to be MiniITX. It has to be small and silent while still packing some horsepower.
Budget is 450$ maximum.

The Celeron should be just fine for her web browsing needs. The GPU is there for just in case because the HD 5xx iGPUs are atrocious.
Looking to save some money as much as I can.
