Hey there, I want to build a system for HD Video/Photo editing for about $850(w/o monitor).

I've never built one so I was wondering if you could let me know if these are compatible and if there is anything I should change to improve performance. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I wanted to buy from Amazon to avoid tax and shipping fees, but I'll definitely check out the suggestions at Newegg. Thanks for the advice!
