So im about to build my first pc. I used to play xbox, record and edit it and post it on youtube, I'm tired of xbox and selling it to continue my channel on pc games my old pc is crap and too costly to upgrade so im looking for input on an amd build for about $450 using an amd phenom II black edition i am taking my 500gb hdd and dvd rom drive i need a good case psu ram and a graphics card capable of capturing and later editing it with vegas pro im not going to be streaming though. Any advice would be great.

i would look at something like this. i would get the newer fx-6300 instead of the phenom II 965. its 6 cores could help with video editing/encoding.
