Default Will this build work

all from newegg.com, usually for gaming and some hd video editing, gaming on mostly arma 2 which is a cpu intensive game, i like recording while playing. I am looking into solid state drives for faster loading, and no real budget but i dont think i need much more than what I'm looking at. Never built my own computer before so just making sure it will all work and nothing is overpriced or i dont need or do need.

Way less PSU, more RAM.

I would up the RAM to 8GB 1600 (Corsair, G.Skill, Kingston, Patriot) and lower the PSU to a Corsair TX650w. You don't need anymore than that.

An SSD is a very good idea. If you want to record to that drive I suggest a 7200RPM. WD Black or a Seagate Barracuda.

ok so i assume the green and black wd are different, i assume green is slower than black, so I'll just change that to a 1tb black 7200rpm for recording space and other things, and get a ssd. I'll change the ram as well. the psu i chose is because im interested in recording high frame rates and slowing them down in videos for slow motion effects, and may later on put another graphics card in sli, so even with the added power usage is that psu still ok? Updated first post
btw- you got 9,999 posts

Yes the Green drives are slower. When recording you want as high sustained write speed as possible when recording at 1080p 30+ frames. Hour long games at this quality can be 40GB+ easy and if a drive has any dip in speed it can mess with your FPS.

A PSU wont effect your FPS or recording speed/quality. All it does is provide power to your system. You can SLI two 670s on 750w worth of decent quality PSU easy. Quality over wattage is something to remember. If you want to SLI you can be safe and simply get a Corsair TX750 which will handle what you want to throw at it unless you want to go 3 way which is practically useless. FPS during recording depends on a lot of things. You need power in a lot of areas but most importantly a drive up to the task that is big enough because IIRC 60FPS 1080p recording takes even more space.

As for the slow motion, I have no idea. I'm not the person to ask for that lol.

yeah i felt dumb after i realized about me referring to psu as gpu and changed it while you posted that. So instead of the 650 ill get the 750. Im not quite sure how ill handle recording rates and all but if I plan on recording like 100fps at 1080p i may need a better/bigger ssd so ill have to think about that as well. I may end up getting only a nice ssd for now and later getting a normal drive.

Not sure you'll be recording 100fps at 1080p. Typically a good 1080p video is only 30fps. I know my machine the way it sits has a hard time doing 1080p 30fps while maintaining 50+ in game. I believe that is just my GPU and slow HDD though.

yeah thats why i would be considering 2x gtx670's with the ssd. ill go ahead and update for one nice ssd and no normal hdd and get the second gtx670 and normal hdd later. I know fps isnt all in the graphics cards but this would be the best way to do it yes?

EDIT: then there is no space for large videos idk maybe I should just get both

Yea stick to an SSD/HDD setup for the space. As long as the drive can sustain 60MB/s+ it should be ok. I was recording to a green drive myself which is why I said don't get one of those.

I would see what the single 670 does then get another one later if you need it. I'm not sure you'll actually need it.

You would be better off here. Raw sequential speed isn't actual sustained speed and isn't everything. IOPS play a key role here since you want to record to the drive while also playing off it. This one is also bigger.
