I think you went overboard on the RAM and way under on the CPU (only getting a dual core) and motherboard.

You also won't have much fun video editing and gaming with an on-board video card.

Well, hardware's not really my thing....

I used tigerdirect and their barebone packages. Something like this:
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard, AMD FX-4300 AM3+ Processor, Kingston HyperX 8GB Memory Module Kit, XFX Radeon HD 6570 1GB GDDR3, 24X DVDRW, KINGWIN 650W PSU, and ULTRA BLK MID-TOWER CASE Bundle at TigerDirect.com

EDIT: It would seem that their barebone kits change alot, as I was able to get a phenom II kit and now they don't have any of those. Also this kit doesn't contain a HDD, but you get the idea...
