$700-900 Video editing computer

First of all, I would like to say thanks in advance for any help provided. Second, this will be the first computer I will be building and look forward to the challenge, however, if you think I am better off just buying a prebuilt pc then I will also take that advice


Approximate Purchase Date: End of June, beginning of July

Budget Range: 700-900

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Will be used mainly for video/photo editing, gaming and hd streaming

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor, hard drives  however do want to purchase a SSD possibly

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, compusa, anywhere

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Preferably an Intel processor because I HEAR they are better for video editing but by no means am I a computer wizard lol so I will take any advice.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe


Additional Comments: Thanks! Any help is much appreciated.

    For what you have stated, your current part selection is very lopsided. Too much to the PSU, and the CPU is taking up too much of the budget for the GPU.
    With my build as you don't need the HDD, you can get this SSD for about the same price, 120GB Mushkin Chronos, just as fast as the M4 and pretty close in reliability.
