Default Check my new build!

Ok, I'm saving up to build a new PC and was looking to get all of your input on the parts I'm looking at right now. I'm new to computers and haven't built a rig yet so it would be great if someone could check if all the parts are compatible with eachother because I dont know for sure if they are. I don't plan on overclocking (way over my head) if that helps with your comments. I plan on using this PC for gaming AND video editing if that helps at all. I'm looking to stay around 1k. I already have a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Thanks

* Currently, I'm still deciding whether to get an 8series now or just wait untill either a price drop happens or dx10 becomes a necessity. Graphics arent the most important thing to me so I could defenitely live without it but it would be helpful if you could also post your thoughts on whether I should get it now or just wait.

what's your budget? there are better builds out there that are AM2 or Conroe. 939 is still good... Just dated... but over all the parts are not bad and will work good together.

Excellent!
