I am in the process of building my own PC as well. I am going with this:
Case: Tempest 210 $58.06
PSU: Rosewill Series RBR1000-M 1000W $119.99
MoBo: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX/GEN 3 R2.0 199.99
CPU: AMD FX 6-Core Black Edition FX-6200 $129.99
RAM: Kingston 8GB DDR3 $64.74
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 $219.99
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit $119.99

Grand total here is about $900. If you want to get more ram that will bring the price up.

@Jacob - Your build isn't that good , a 1000W PSU for a FX 6200 and 7950 with no practical OCing headroom ? Thats poor.

If SSD isn't a must , opt for a better CPU and a faster GPU.

If you can break the bank , opt for this as it leaves more room for OCing which will help you to get more performance especially in gaming and editing -

Nope , that will power 2 of your PC's. Get something with 600-750W range. I would get this EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750B which is a steal. If you can't get it , get this Corsair TX750V2 or this Corsair TX650M if modularity is concerned. This PC Power&Cooling Silencer MkIII 600W or this SeaSonic M12II 850W which is also another steal.
