Not sure about the amd chip, not too knowledgeable on them, but it seems kind of cheap in relation to the rest of the build. Also, does she game or do anything that'd really take advantage of the gpu?

a 600w evga will do, but if you're going to spend the bucks for a corsair power supply, then you might as well spend a little more for the absolute best (seasonic)

the thing is what Moop1337 doesn't understand is that Seasonic make both corsair and EVGA.

I knew corsair rebranded it's PSU's, but was not aware that EVGA did the same. I will probably buy EVGA's in the future for a cheaper build. (but for now I'll stick with a branded SeaSonic, because I like modular power supplies).

im with you seasonic is the best but they just doesn't make a lot of wattage vortices make them to expensive

Cute. If you think a 500w psu that isn't even bronze rated can hold up to an AMD CPU and a 280x, on top of having the belief that a 860k is more powerful than a 4160, then more power to you.

are you a idiot im sorry in the name it say's EVGA 500W 80+ bronze Certified ATX Power supply and it doesn't matter because EVGA and Corsair PSU are MADE BY SEASONIC GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. plus the build i listed above runs only 445 WATTS meaning there is still a big buffer between the PSU max watt rate

she does want to do little gaming and i won't do the G3258 because the althon beats it in most dept ments she will be using and SSD not needed and 960 are not good but she doesn't need one the 280x will run fine
