The FX processor excels at video encoding in programs that can use all 8 cores . Ideally overclock a little to FX 8150 speeds and it will beats intels i5 2500k at that task

Motherboard is a quality unit with on board video so you dont need a separate video card . HDMI port for connection to a 1080p TV

RAM is lower latency units that will improve application run times

The case is also quality , with adequate cooling , and a power supply that will last
