New to PC Building

Help, I'm new to PC building and I have been trying to choose parts for a budget PC. I'm trying my best not to go over 700 USD. And BTW, I did not include a graphics card because I seldom play games.

Case: Bitfenix Prodigy M
Power Supply: Corsair VS650
Motherboard: Asus H81M-E
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770k
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit
Main Storage: Seagate ST1000LM014 SSHD 1TB Hard Drive

PS: Parts in my country are quite expensive.

    Would you pl describe your usage. It does not make sense that you have chosen 4770k but with H81 series mobo. k series processors are factory unlocked hence they can be overclocked.
  2. Yo'll need a graphics card to be able to use the monitor. You just use integrated graphics (into the cpu) or a discrete graphics card

    For AMD use an eg A10 7850k or with intel, any of the cpu with hd4600 graphics eg i7 4790

    EL - can you redo your PPickers?

    I'll be spending most of my time editing videos and stuff for school. I also spent my free time playing games like BF3. I want to play games at pretty high settings. Does that make sense for me to buy an i7 or should I go with an i5?

    For video editing, I would recommend i7 4770k. I will post that build shortly
