Post Help with build decisions!!!!

I am new to all the computer building, but i have had lots of help from my friends and tutorials. Anyway i need to build a computer that will be good enough to edit 16+ tracks of audio on programs such as sonar 8 and stuff. I also will be doing video editing to create music videos. I have put together this computer, but i dont know if it is overkill for what i will be doing. Another thing i probably will get into gaming, but nothing major.

Didn't take a really good look, but def. go with the AM3 socket, not the AM2. Then you get DDR3 support, and better future upgrade options.

Go with the first one. the full 1080p is a lot better for many purposes including blu-ray, but yeah, read the blu-ray thread before buying. that is the same model i bought that didn't have the right software to play blu-rays

Generally, don't buy a monitor with less than 1920x1080 unless it is less than 19" or less than $150. that is my general rule.
