So I want to build my first computer but I need help, and I don't really know what I should get.
Basically what I want is a pretty fast overall computer, mostly for using the internet (watching videos and things like that), and also I want to do some video editing on gopro studio sometimes. I lastly want it to be able to maybe handle some light games, not anything super fast or anything, I just want it to be able to if I want it. I hope I could get this for somewhere around $500 or $600(not including monitor). I was thinking about getting the smallest possible, like mini itx, since I don't like those big towers, i'd prefer it to be compact so I could put it on a desk. The only thing I've looked at really is the case, I like the Thermaltake Core V1, so I want everything to be compatible with this. I ask if someone could help me with picking every single part, and I want to say thank you ahead of time.

I was also thinking on getting a small SSD for software and a hard drive for everything else like videos and pictures.

That is a pretty good site for that type of thing. 

 

I would recommend a high end i3 and maybe 6 GB of RAM for this type of PC.

i3's would be perfect for a build in this price range.

I agree that the i3 would be a perfect fit. Just my 2 cents.

Here is an example selection http://pcpartpicker.com/p/62xvyc  The Sandisk SSD Plus is very cheap but it seems well reviewed by owners.  With rebates and offers its' closer to $500, so you could probably change the CPU to an i5 and stay technically in budget...  More so if you already have a valid copy of Windows you can use.
