System Usage (from most to least important):
Alot of Video Editing/Rendering (ex: After FX), Drawing (ex: Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai), Photo Editing, Some Gaming, Typing, Web-Surfing

Parts Not Required:
Keyboard, Mouse, Monitors

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
No preference - cheapest and most reliable. Also should be available in Canada, but I still need recommendations whether CAD dollars or not.

Country: Canada, but I still need recommendations whether CAD dollars or not.

Parts Preferences:
Best Price to Performance is all.
Parts I have in mind: http://
Parts I'm quite certain with:
CPU: AMD FX-8350
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
HHD: WD Caviar Blue/Black 1TB
PSU: Corsair CX600M (Purchased)
RAM: Any at 16GBs, may upgrade to 24GB or 32GB in the future if possible.

Overclocking:
Not familiar with this, open to either or.

SLI or Crossfire:
Probably not, sticking with one card.

Monitor Resolution:
1920x1080

Additional Comments:
Hello! I'm new here, so sorry if I didn't do something right.
Currently I'm setting up my first Editing PC and I'm having trouble finding parts that match together for my needs. So far, I'm certain for a couple of parts but not all. I'm aiming for around $1000 or lower, since I can't seem to get below $1000. I'm aiming for this system to last me for a while and with decent specs, even in the future. Any and all help is really appreciated, since again, I'm new :) .

Well your build you listed is well over $1,000, and also doesn't take into account the $160+ for memory and $100+ for the HDD. Don't really know what to do without decreasing the performance a bit.

I dont see how this build is over 1000 dollars. Is going to cost more to purchase these items with the Canadian dollar compared to buying with US dollars?

No, the parts you have listed, it's not listing a price for the RAM or HDD, which are both pretty expensive. When your build takes into account RAM and a HDD, it becomes over $1,300:

This will get you close to what you had listed. The 750 has CUDA, which will help, and will do decent at 1080p at medium or so for gaming. The cooler will keep the CPU fan quiet. About the best you can get at that budget in Canada lol
