I've put together a build for a new PC. It needs to be able to load raw gameplay footage from various games so that I can edit them for YouTube. It also needs to run games at fairly high graphics. I can't go over $1000.

Can anyone tell me if this build is completely compatible, and if anyone has better ideas for its components that would remain in my price range, I would love to hear any suggestions. This is my first build ever, so please excuse any noobiness on my part.

CPU: Intel Core i5-2550K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor $225.98

Motherboard:Asus P8Z68-V PRO ATX LGA1155 Motherboard $199.99

Memory: Pareema 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $40.49

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $109.99

Video Card: Zotac GeForce GTX 560 SE 1GB Video Card $129.99

Case: Antec Three Hundred Illusion ATX Mid Tower Case $69.99

Power Supply:CoolMax 500W ATX Power Supply $19.99

Optical Drive: HP 1270i DVD/CD Writer $24.50

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Full (32/64-bit)$162.00



Total Price:$994.72

Thank you TheBigTroll. I have reviewed your suggested build and it is much better and more cost effective than my own. You have really helped me out, thank you.
