I'm very new to the computer building world and am interested in getting this. Would these work together? Is there better parts for a similar price?
Would I be able to run most games at a decent speed?
I'm also into editing and such. Would this run programs like Photoshop fine?

I would say go for a Pentium G8xx from Intel with a B75 motherboard. Then you can save some money and maybe get a nicer GPU or something. The 965BE is just really old, its 3 generations behind.

Other than that it looks fine. You might want a case though, and a DVD drive.
