I have no experience building my own PC. Any suggestions on companies that build solid, pre-built PCs for video editing and motion graphics. Something that is powerful at a good price?

Would you be willing to build one?

You would save almost more than $500.

Google "How to build a PC" and see if you are up to it.

Alrighty, you've convinced me! I'm looking into building my own editing/motion graphics machine. These are the specs I've come up with so far. Any thoughts? Also, I need recommendations on a case and power supply.
