RE: Compatible?
To make sure, this is mostly parts listed in the budget build article, correct? I want to point out that, outside of specific pairings listed in the article (Eg: an 1155 Intel chip MUST go with an 1155 Intel mobo) you can switch out anything that's in that article.

I do see you have different RAM & DVD drive than listed - both of those will work, but as a note, you're probably paying too much for the DVD burner (should be around $20, not $30) unless you want that one for a particular reason. But other than that, you look good to go!

RE: Compatible?
If don't mind me asking, what is your max budget? The G860 is on the weak side especially for video editing. Also what resolution monitor do you have?

Once we know a budget we can start changing parts to fit the price.

RE: Compatible?
I was hoping to stay around the same budget as I currently have in those items listed. So around 600. And yes those were all from the budget build article, and oh could you link me to a cheaper DVD drive? And I'm hoping to have a 20" widescreen monitor, I'm just using a laptop for now.

RE: Compatible?
Upgrading the CPU would be best. Considering windows will cost about $100 I would go with a tier 1.

Also I'm a student with access to Microsoft Dreamspark so I can download any of their OS's for free for my own personal use for free.
