Hello Friends

I am from India and I require help in building/assembling a Desktop

My main requirements are as follows:

Desktop Processing
Watching HD movies
Creating HD (atleast 720p) Screencasts (while playing games like Skyrim etc. and while using softwares)

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 250GB ~ 3900 INR [yes hard drive prices have shot up like anything thanks to floods in Thailand]

Logitech Media combo [keyboard + mouse]
DVD Writer [Samsung / LG / HP OEM piece]
Seasonic S12II 520W
NZXT Gamma OR NZXT Source 210
