I am creating a plan for a new desktop, for school, gaming, video editing, etc. and need some advice. This is my current configuration http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1D07l But I have never built a computer before and therefore am not sure 1: how well these parts will fit together in a case. 2: what shall be best as to Internet connection, USB or PCI? 3: approximately what level of performance should I get out of this, in gaming(various open source games, minecraft, skyrim, etc.) while recording, in video streaming, and editing. Any extra tips and critique will be much appreciated!

You can do much better than this , and the quality of some of the parts is questionable
FX 6300 [ you can easily OC this to the higher 6350 speed ]
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 , or Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P motherboard
2 x4 gig of RAM 1600 MHz , rated 1.5 volts or less
Coolermaster Hyper 212 cpu cooler, Or Xigmatek Gaia 1283 . Better and cheaper than the budget water cooler
Those changes alone let you fit a Radeon 7870
and is you go with a good , but not top end case like the CM HAF 912 , Antec One gamer , Corsair 200 or 300 ,
Or the Antec 302 you can afford a better graphics card .
Alrighty. Now, I am hesitant to downgrade the CPU for two reasons: 1: I am not confident with over clocking, and 2: if I WERE t over clock it, wouldn't that still give me more use ability than a slightly better graphics card?
