I wish to build a computer that I can use to edit/mix videos as well as to run other office related apps. but I dont have 2 grand to waste. Could someone please tell me what kind of CPU/Motherboard combo I should look at for good flexibility and something that wont get too outdated soon. What type of ATX case I should go with. What things to keep in mind. I have never assembled my own PC so this is the first time.

Fastest P4 you can afford, on an Abit TH7-II-RAID. 512meg or so of PC800 (or better yet, 1066).

Lian-Li cases rock, you can look into those.

Anything else you want to know about?

Yeah, the p4 shines on video editing. But you'll have to make sure the program you'll be using has a patch for the sse2 extensions. Otherwise, you're better off with an Athlon system.
