Ok, I've done a lot of research after posting this thread asking for suggestions on a new all-around Desktop build:

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/290562-31-affordable-...

I think I'm pretty close. Here is what I've come up with so far:

CPU

Mobo( I like the USB 3 support & SATA 6 for future upgrades)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM

Graphics Card

Case (the USB/etc. on top of the case is nice)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU

DVD/Blu-Ray

Storage (I have a 1TB SATA drive that I'll move from the old machine for video storage)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Monitor (This seems like a good choice but are there better options?)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total is about $800 w/shipping. I'd need a copy of Windows 7 but I think that's about it.

I basically want something that can last me 4-5 years and allow me to do some basic HD video creation, along with possibly some gaming in addition to all the other stuff (YouTube, MS Office, etc.). Other than that I don't think I need much more. Is there anything I'm missing or should change or swap out for better value? Also, this will be my 1st build so is there any other miscellaneous stuff I'll need?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hmm
$640AR once u swap out F3 1TB with F3 500

23" LCD $170 free ship

$810AR
If you think your gaming needs do not warrant a GTX 460 i would hit HD 5770 or even HD 4850 rather than a HD 5670 @ that price to be honest...
