I have a monitor and HDD already. I am wondering if this is the best build i can do? I will use this mostly for gaming and maybe some small video editing. I absolutely can not spend anymore money(live in US)! What do you guys think? Will this PC have any problems? Anything i can get better for same price? Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That looks like a solid build. Few things though to save money.

Mushkin Blacklyne Frostbyte 8 Gb RAM.
CoolerMaster Haf 912
XFX Core Edition 550W - I'm assuming you're not planning to SLI because of your MoBo choice.

Should save you close to $50.

Yeah i see no need to SLI with this card. Also i plan on getting an SDD later on as something for me to upgrade.
