Hey guys so ive been putting together a build for the past month or so and i have never built a computer and i dont know anything about the parts, but i got all my parts from youtube videos, and just asking around...
so if you could please tell me if this is a good build and if not why, and if you could find me a better part for the same price if not cheaper (my budget is very tight and i can not go higher then it is now) then i would be grateful.

i dont want to spend more then $1000 so please if you know a better / cheaper part if you could tell me what it is i would be very happy! and also, just to tell me if everything in here is compatible with eachother or not.. and what i am going to be using this computer for is video editing and also a little bit of gaming.

Thanks if you read this far, and thanks for the help that i hope i get!

Looks good to me. I would recommend the xfx550 PSU instead though.

This comes in just a hair under $1,000, but it will do everything better. Intel for maximum gaming speed. Overclockable. Nice modular supply and a new technology, much faster video card. This will do a much better job at gaming.
