A pc for office work.

So my family runs a company and my mother just asked me to try to build for her a pc just for work, mainly using Microsoft with some light web surfing, mainly for downloading documents from the internet. Because this will be mainly used for employees so we don't want to go to expensive so our budget will be from 300-350$ though lower than that is also welcomed. Aside from that, I also want to include at least a 120gb SSD as a boot drive to increase the speed to work and a 1 TB HDD to save the documents. So far, I have tried to make one for references pcpartpicker but still can't bring it down to my budget limit so I'm hoping you guys can help me out here.

P/s: Also I don't know anything about CPU aside from the gaming one, but I am aware that both AMD and Intel provide low-end CPU that is not intended for gaming, can we use that instead?

Your build is a good start made a few tweaks to come into budget. Just make sure you by a Ryzen 2000 series ready version of the motherboard.

Ahh, thank you, my main problem was how to choose the power supply, for some reason I always instinctively choose a gold 80+ lol

Some good points made by slkipp and forgot the little 200GE. Here is a build with suggested changes. I opted not to go for mail in rebates as I find them a hassle, but if workable for yourself there are options for more savings.

Ah yes, thank you, I also tried to look into the Celeron series but my knowledge on this part is just too limited, and I'm sure that 1TB SSD is going to help the pc much much faster now than before.

I see, thanks for the advice and clearing up the misunderstanding about SSD for me.
