GFX:
Newegg.com - ATI 100-437808 Radeon X1650PRO 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

SOUND KARD:
Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail

(i am not sure about the soundcarde though i dont have much knowledge on those)

Oh@vernon g: the spinpoint is faster and quieter than the barracuda and also i am sue that it uses perpendicular recording.
sound doesn't need 4gb ram, but i agree on the x1650pro, and the x-fi sound card......

It looks like you haven't given me any RAM or a monitor.

I appreciate the help from everyone, I just need most people to agree on the computer.

you probably will be fine with 2 gb(2 x 1) of gskill RAM
and for a moniter i'd go with a widescreen 19'' or if you like big upgrade to a 22''
Samsung, and LG are high quality brands
Acer, Sceptre, Hanns, and Viewsonic are other good brands

What about a soundcard a videocard? Are those necessary?

I built these high quality satellite speakers 2 years ago and they're really good, I plan on hooking them up to my computer.

As for film editing I'm just gettin started with basics nothing crazy.

well a vid card is necessary because you have to process video somehow
and an x-fi will make those speakers go to their full potential

Alright thanks, I'll just wait for the people helping me to assemble a deal for me in the meantime.

Also I bought a hard drive almost 2 years ago that I never used and it is still brand new, here is the link to it.

PROVANTAGE: Seagate ST3300831AS Barracuda 7200.8 300GB SATA/150 NCQ 8MB 7200RPM

Back then the back of this hard drive looked completely different from the one inside my computer so I just shelved it and never used it, I don't know if its outdated its been less than a couple years, and on that link there are some users who have had said it has its faults but if I can save $80 on a Hard drive and use this one I have that would be nice.

Alright thanks.

But...where are the techies that were helping me with a machine.

I mean I'd like a few people to agree on a suitable PC for me I think, and recommend me places online to buy it before I blow full steam ahead. Also, when the parts do come I will need help assembling!!
