Decent build.

PSU: get 80+ Bronze. It wastes less electricity and doesn't add as much heat as a non 80+ model. How about Corsair CX430.

The only thing I'm unsure of is..... do you need a video card? GPUs are not just for games but also editing. The fx-6300 has onboard graphics and it should be OK but that's a guess.

Otherwise, everything else looks fine.

Stick with 80+ power supplies, IE something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You are missing a Video card. Best bang for your buck option is the 7850 1gb at $150-160 on sale. FX don't have onboard graphics, so you need something even if you won't play games at all.
For just general usage in your budget range the A10-5800k with an FM2 motherboard instead is a decent option - onboard graphics that can play games (at lower resolutions), and a processor comparable to the i3-3220 or FX-4300. (Slower than the FX-6300 at multithreaded tasks like video encoding, but almost certainly as fast as you need).

FX Processors don't have onboard graphics. Some AM3+ motherboards have a very basic 2d chipset build in, but it isn't even comparable to Intel HD 2500, let alone the cheapest discrete cards you can buy. The motherboard he selected has no graphics without a graphics card, period.

ok thanks for everyones input, as far as the grafix card i dont game so i dont need an expensive one what would be a good one just for some good video just below gaming grade and the motherboard if i can get a better one which one would be better, thanks guys

The 7750 ScrewySql linked above is a good choice - still has some basic gaming ability, but no need for PCI-E power connectors, loud cooling, etc. If not a 7750 get the absolute cheapest PCI-E card you can find on someplace like newegg (should be $10-20 after rebate), and assume you won't ever play any game more taxing than one on facebook. I don't see any issue with the motherboard you picked, looks like an OK budget option.

Ok well your not gunna be using this for gaming, but you could possibly wait later to get an SSD card and increase your CPU or GPU and tweak anything else. But if you really want that extra speed SqeekySgrls build should be fine

If you go with cheap gpu - make sure it has it's own memory - not one that uses your ram. Shared memory will make even opening a web browser slower.
