This would be my first attempt at building a computer and am very nervous about it. I am looking to spend no more then 800 and closer to 700 would be best. I use my computer to surf, photos, music, and have started doing some video edit on it. Not really into games but might at some point. What I have come up with so far is below but would like any suppestions and I would like to know if what I have picked would all work togehter.
Approximate Purchase Date e.g.: this week (the closer the better))

Preferred Website(s) for Parts open to anything
