I have between £500 and £600 ($750-$950), I cannot spend anymore than that. I do realize that this won't be able to buy the best of the best but I do accept that. I can either get all the parts separately or just get one big machine. All responses would be great. Thanks

leaves you with some extra cash for maybe a slightly better case and some fans if needed

the 660 is a capable card in your price range, in this price range AMD is really the only viable option and that 6300 is no slacker, it should handle most editing software comfortably, that SSD is necessary to load most editing apps on or you will tear your hair out using them. Plus Nvidia benefits from CUDA for your editing needs.
if 600 is your budget I would recommend some case fans.

Thanks, sorry to be annoying but what would be the minimum requirements in every department?

For editing you will want 8gb at least with an upgrade path to 16gb which that build allows.
the fx series are good chips, not at the level of an i5 or i7 but if you can use the 6 cores of the fx, then for the price it will be a great option.
you should run all your software for editing perfectly well
