what is your budget? where do you live?

SSD's are cool and junk, but 60 Gb as your only drive is really going to limit what you can do, as for best results you can only use about 80% of that.

I changed my mind, I'm going with this case now

Thermaltake Black Commander MS-I
Thermaltake Black Commander MS-I VN450A1W2A Black ATX Mid Tower Case (500W) - Centre Com

Also I'll buy an extra fan for the front?

As was asked, what PSU?
If you have other drives to pair with the SSD for storage then that's fine. I used a 64GB SSD for the longest time paired with a 160GB HDD.

If this rig will be used for gaming after upgrading the GPU then there is no point in buying 16GB of RAM. You can save a few bucks by simply getting 8GB.

You could probably get a better PC if the budget wasn't so low, but Aus prices are just so high for PC parts.

I'll be using this for mostly video editing high-level
So will this build be stable?
Also, PSU will be anything good and cheap, probs just another 120mm fan

Ah ok, if you are doing that then go ahead and keep the 16GB of RAM.

Don't cheap out on the PSU. Grab a Corsair, Antec, or Seasonic. You also want to make sure it is at least 550w.
