Hey Toms hardware people! I've always found great advice for computers in your forums, but I've never actually posted. So, this is my first post and i apologize if something is wrong or out of place, please let me know! Anyways, i am fairly new to custom building; Ive only built one PC, a gaming PC for myself. Now, i am building a more subdued system for my parents. I need to know if all pf the parts will work together/be compatible and if they will be an optimal combination or not. Thanks in advance guys!
Approximate Purchase Date: immediately (within 10 days probably)
Budget Range: max of 700
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Video Editing/Graphic Design, Web Page Design, Gaming, Watching videos. (not strict, its a general purpose build really)
Parts Not Required: Mouse, keyboard, monitor.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com
Country of Origin: US
Parts Preferences: see below \/
Overclocking: probably not now, only when it becomes slightly outdated (to make it last longer)
SLI or Crossfire: not for a while if ever.
Monitor Resolution: i think it is 1280*1024 but it might be 1024*768
There's no point in getting the ModXStream 700W; there are better deals on the ModXStream 600W. Your build won't make use of the extra output. They both only have 2 PCI-E connectors so it is very hard to make use of more than 500W.

i think its pretty much what i want, but if anyone sees any better combos/items that are similar thats awesome. As for major reworks of the build, i think this is the general setup that i want for its intended use. Also, i dont mind the look of the case, so dont worry about that, however if a just as decent case can be had for less, thats very welcome. Mostly a compatibility check, no issues foreseen right guys? Also, Batuchka, beastly build man, if only my budget was 100 more i would jump on that right now!
