Recently I've been really interested in computers and interested and building one from scratch, but pretty much have no knowledge aside from surfing the web and YouTube videos. Ive done plenty of research and put together a list of parts that I think are pretty good. However, I don't know much so I'm hoping you guys can catch the errors in my components. I don't really have a budget but preferably under 1500$. I'm fine with spending a little more if it makes a significant difference but computers aren't really a huge thing in my life so I don't want to spend a ton on it. By the way I'm starting from scratch and still need a mous, monitor, and keyboard.
Specs
AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor
Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 4GB WINDFORCE Video Card
Asus BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer
Cougar 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
DIYPC Skyline-07-R Black SECC ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case with 7 x 120mm Red Fans, Hot Swap Docking, Fan Controller

Sorry for not linking. I'm doing this for an iPad.

You can visit pcpartpicker.com , this website will help you eliminate incompatible parts, multiple prices from multiple online stores, total cost, total watts consume, and users rating. 

 

By the way, nice build! But i would go with new  Intel i5 and either Z87 or Z97 motherboard if your build less than your budget and add an SSD for OS then you are goodie.

 

Also, what country are you in? So we can help you from that because each country have different prices as one might be higher compare to the other. For instance, i find out that Canada prices are insanely high compare to US.

 

You also missing the CPU cooler as  AMD box cooler are not worth it, but if you are okay with box cooler then you don't have to buy 3rd party CPU Cooler. As 3rd party CPU cooler will give you nice temperature and prevent from overheating.

If anybody else has anymore feedback could you please send me an exact model name or a link because I don't really know which one to pick. There's soooo many options.

Idk,

 

Here's my recommended computer build. I have selected all parts to make the computer build as balanced as possible. 

 

You can do a lot of video editing, streaming and other extensive graphical work without any lags. If anyone else tells you differently, then they really don't know what they are talking about. Getting an i7 4790k processor will not speed up things nor will it help in terms of gaming.

 

That's why I selected 16 GB of system RAM to help with the load when you do any extensive graphical work.

 

You should not experience any lag in most software that you use plus you can easily stream online as well due to the excellent performance of the Radeon R9 290x graphic card.

 

I also selected an 144 MHz, 1 ms monitor for best performance.

 

 
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 3 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard  ($127.95 @ Amazon) 
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer  ($17.67 @ Amazon) 
Case Fan: Antec True Quiet 120 RED 35.3 CFM 120mm  Fan  ($12.99 @ Amazon) 
Case Fan: Antec True Quiet 120 RED 35.3 CFM 120mm  Fan  ($12.99 @ Amazon) 
Monitor: Asus VG248QE 144Hz 24.0" Monitor  ($249.99 @ Amazon) 
Total: $1495.49

I got these two overkill setup that you might interested, they both equip haswell CPU that can give you good performance for video editing, and an GTX 970 which is power efficiency.

 

The 1st PC build going to beat the second PC build when it come to CPU competition because i7 4790k beat i7 4770k in term of thermal management and clock speed higher. i7 4770k base clock is 3.5Ghz and boost clock up 3.9Ghz, while i7 4790k base clock is 4.0Ghz and boost clock up to 4.4Ghz

 

i5 is good for gaming, but not video editing. However, if you want SOME HORSE POWER for video editing then this is where i7 come into place with HYPERTHREADING technology build in from i7 that can shows it true potential over the i5. 

 

Both of them equip 16GB RAM, plenty of RAM to run future applications and also video editing software as well, and i also add 3rd part CPU cooler, while it keeps everything nice and cool but also give you headroom for overclocking.

 

I also choose Windows 8.1, so you can upgrade to Windows 10 for free in the mean time, plus Direct X 12 will increase Maxwell architecture performance. While AMD on the other hand just sitting duck

I was going to make a suggestion but you don't really state what this computer is for.  If your not really in to gaming and your just wanting to ' build a pc ' this can be done with sub standard parts.  What will you use this system for?  And then I can offer my suggestion.

Gaming. all suggestions welcome:)

 

Idk,

 

My suggested computer build will do the job just fine for high end gaming purposes.

 

The nice thing about that computer build is that you can always upgrade to a faster processor and add more system RAM (up to 32 GB) if the need arises in the future.
