So this is my first time building my own machine, and although i've done an extensive amount of research, I can't help but feel nervous. Why? Because i'm buying these parts on cyber monday to cut down the costs, and so I want to be absolutely sure they are compatible. So take a look at the list and tell me if you see anything wrong. I really appreciate any help, tips, or advice.

Processor- $120 - Link: http://www.amazon.com/AMD-6100-6-Core-Processor-Socket/...

Case -$40 - Link: http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Elite-430-RC-430-KW...

Power Supply - $20 - Link: http://www.amazon.com/Diablotek-Series-400-Watt-Supply-...

Motherboard - $60 - Link: http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-SB710-Chipset-Motherboar...

Change the CPU to a FX-4300 and scrap the Diablotek PSU. Those are literally the bottom of the barrel PSU's. It says 400W, but I bet it couldn't squeeze 340W. Replace it with a CX430

Why to a fx-4300?

Keep in mind that the intended purpose for this machine is video editing.

Well if that's the case, if you want to keep costs down (Though I recommend an i5 for editing/rendering) Get the 6300. The 6100 is based off of the "Bulldozer" architecture, which isn't at all known for it's performance. The 6300 is based off of the "Piledriver" architecture, which is newer, and somewhat better.

1.Power Supply IS TOTALY JUNK!Remember if your PSU dies then your have risk of MB,Video card and others components so thats not gona be good better spend more money on PSU then in more parts and again cheap PSU
2.CPU also is NOT good and if you can gain a little bit more money get one of these bad boys!
