Will these all be compatible with each other? Wasn't sure how well the Micro-ATX Mobo would fit in the ATX case... (sorry, this is my first build :kaola:  )

Also, can anyone recommend a mid-range PSU for me? Lastly, any components you see that might be able to help me save a little money?


THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

Yes but don't go mATX - if you need to add or remove HDs or anything of that nature, the limited number of SATA ports will be frustrating. Go with a full ATX board like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Do not get a 550TI - even on the low end of NVIDIA GPUs you could do better, go with a 6850 like this:

for the GTX 550 Ti (or Radeon 6850), you won't need more than a decent 450w power supply - you'll be more than safe with 550w (and that Antec is modular too)

@gunit1111

I've heard that NVIDIA cards are better than AMD when it comes to Video Edits... any knowledge on this?

That's true that the higher end cards have a set of instructions called "CUDA" that make it easier on video editing, but the lower end ones do not (although I'm not entirely sure about that). If you can put a but more into the GPU and go 560TI:

Try the 100 - it's $15 cheaper - it's Antec quality with Corsair level cable management:

The UD3H would be a better choice for $9 more (not a fan of the blue / white color scheme) :
