Building First Computer (Needing some advice)

Hi everyone! I've always read these threads, never made one. I am making a computer to handle Adobe Premiere and After Effects (At least somewhat better than what I'm currently using). Also, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place. If so, please be gently.

I'd appreciate if anyone can tell me if these parts will all work with each other or if they know cheaper parts that will do the job just as good. Also, feel free to tell me what else I need if I'm missing something. I'm kind of confused on fans, still.

One last thing, due to my limited funds (and knowledge), I think I'm only going to use one hard drive for the time being.

Once again, I appreciate your guys' time/wisdom, whether you reply or not. :)  I hope to hear from someone! Thanks in advance!

Here are my parts I've got so far:

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

They all look fine to me but here is what i consider a better build and if you don't need some stuff replace that with a better gpu.

Nice! Building is very rewarding. Here are my thoughts:

1) You should get a better name in PSUs...I personally wouldn't trust my components to RAIDMAX, not to say there's inherently anything wrong with them, but they're not a 'name' in PSUs. And you don't need that much wattage with this setup, so check out the Corsair CX600: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

2) Save yourself $30-$40 and check out the Gigabyte AM3+ board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... Very well reviewed, same general specs as the ASUS.

3) You could save a few bucks in the RAM area, check these out:

650 Ti BOOST is a great call. I have one and I love it. You may be aware, but if can get faster discs, they will improve Adobe Premiere and AE, because you can set up cache files there.

Cheers!

I actually looked at that board! I wasn't sure between that and the one I posted. I mean, if it works with all of the other pieces I've got picked out, I guess I've gotta choose it! Also, I guess I'll save on the ram too!

I did know about the disks, but I figured I'll just take this one step at a time. lol

Anyway, thanks man! The help is super appreciated!

Actually, mind if I ask you one more question? With the case I chose, do you think I would have to buy any additional fans? Or am I in the clear, there?

If you wanted to...it comes with 5, which is a pretty good deal. It will hold 10, but that might be a little overkill :) 

If they're too noisy, which they might be, check out Corsair SP120s, Noctuas, or another quiet fan name.

Ahh, alright! Sorry, once again, complete noob over here! :) 

I think I'll be fine with the 5 it comes with, then! Thanks again for everything!
