Post PC build

Here's a component list of the system I'm building:
Gigabyte GA-880GMA-UD2H motherboard, Phenom II X6 1055t processor, Crucial 4GB (2x2) 1333mhz DDR3 memory, Radeon HD 5770 GPU, Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 3gb/s hard drive, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS, Black Broadway Com Corp 9257 case (w/600w PSU) case.
I'm planning on using it for some online gaming (CS:S, Starcraft) and watching and editing video in 1080p.
Any suggestions, comments, or problems?

That CPU is major overkill for a gaming machine while the 5770 isn't that high caliber either and whatever PSU comes with that case I wouldn't trust as far as I could throw. Oh and that mobo would hold you back.

What kind of budget are you looking at and I'll see if we can help.

Welcome to TF!!!

Yea, I'm from the US.
I wanted to just go with a built-in PSU because that is the part that I know the least about. Is 600 watts enough for that system? My budget is 8-900 dollars, but I'm trying to keep it closer to 8.
The main reason why I'm looking at a powerful processor is the editing. I've had bad experiences with editing on a slow computer, it just kills me.

When it comes to PSU's you would be surprised at how little the wattage matters and it's one place that you don't want to be cheap or guess because a bad PSU can take out thousands of dollars in parts in one foul swoop.

Powerful processor is doable but a six-core is 99% of the time just bragging rights.

Let me put something together for you right now that fits your budget and your needs.

MOBO/CPU

$690.93 Free shipping.

That will do what you need it to and more and leaves some room in the budget if you want more disk space or ram. I went with a nicer case for future expandability.

Actually I'm looking at more of a 6-700 dollar budget, the other 200 is keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc.

Edited the list. Changed the case. Any cheaper and you start to lose performance but just let me know.

get this hdd instead Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6402AAEX 640GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
It's faster than the blue series and it's the same price.

I would get this PSU Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply It's more than enough for this build

With the $20 saved on the PSU I would get this combo with a better cpu:Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

That's not a cpu. lol

But I know which one you were thinking of. Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX

So than go with this combo instead of the original mobo/cpu i listed.
