well for $413 you could make something like this
fm2 motherboard with usb3 matx
2x4gb 1866 ram
smaller sized hdd
430w modular psu
includes windows 7 os in price (the other build doesnt and thats an extra $80-90)
for $50-100 more you could make something intel with integrated.
not a bad system for non gaming...and light use. it can even handle some light video editing though its not going to be as good as a system with a seperate cpu and gpu. any sort of complex after effects or 4k resolution is likely way beyond the capabilities though. for anything major or professional you should expand your budget by a good margin and get an i7 with a mid ranged video card. adding 16gb of ram instead of 8 also isnt a bad idea.
