^ follow him

btw BECAREFUL with GeForce GT 640 2GB 128-bit DDR3
as adobe premiere needs at least NVIDIA with 1GB DDR5... consider GT 650 DDR5 :)

Rosewill RFX-100B 90mm PCI Slot Case Cooler
$3.99
is a waste :) 

do not buy case with PSU as the PSU will be a bad quality one
RAIDMAX Altas ATX-295WBP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply
$59.99

buy any cheap case at 30ish
and add corsair cx430 on it :)  this cheap PSU is decent
