Wink Building my first computer! Want to help look over my build? :D

Hey guys! I've been working with a few friends and have gotten together what I would like to think as a semi-finalized list of items for building my first computer!

I've been waiting to do this for years now, so I'm just coming to you guys (The real pros) for a second/final opinion.

I will be doing the following things;

1. Playing SC2 on close to max settings
2. A small amount of video editing (Nothing more than WMM)
3. A lot of word processing/simple school work
4. Playing other misc. games on 1920x1080p
5. Using a second monitor with 1280x1024 res.

Here's my build! Any recommendations or comments? (Remember, it's my first build. I'm not aiming for a top of the line gaming rig
but want a nice computer while still staying as close to $800 as possible)

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=12548031

Also please disregard the hard drive, I'm going to be using the 600gb 7200rpm drive from my old computer, this one is just to keep the computer running.

THANKS EVERYONE!
(But really, thanks guys I really appreciate it.)

Yup! I will be using my old hard drive and getting a new one just so my old computer is still functional and somebody else can use it.

vinmans list is really nice, whatever you do dont go for a coolermaster PSU. Its only good for half the wattage that its rated for.
