Hello, i know the basics about computers and how to build them but i need someone to double check my build and tell me if it will work for editing videos in after effects and making music in reason.

This is what i have:
Asus GeForce GTX 650 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
AMD HDT35TWFGRBOX Phenom II X6 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
8 gigs of ddr3 1600MHz ram http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
samsung dvd drive http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... OEM
cool max 600 watt power supply http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
toshiba 1 tb sata hard drive http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
cooler master mid tower case http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

to me it looks good im just not sure about the ram and its only 8 gigs now but ill get more later on.
Thanks

Yes it would but it'd be wiser to get a cheaper motherboard and a better CPU since it's the most important part of your PC for video rendering.

3570K with a 80-90$ Z77 motherboard would be a night and day difference for just a few more $$. Also, I'd not cheap out on PSU, get something with 80+ certificate, Corsair 500W Builder Series at the very least.

i would suggest looking into a fx-6300 with 6 cores or a fx-8320/8350 with 8 cores and getting a cheaper motherboard. a 128GB ssd would also be something to consider. do all the parts have to be bought from tigerdirect?

you could also save some money on the graphics card.

i don't see any reviews for that coolmax psu. i would be wary of any coolmax psu.

i priced all your parts out at tigerdirect for $618.90. if you are willing to buy from multiple places this is cheaper and better. add in a $90 128GB ssd and it completely blows the other build out of the water.
