Wife decided to ditch her laptop and go to a desk top computer. She is just a home uses and does occasional video editing. She is not into gaming. I have come up with a list of what I think would make her a nice build. Let me know what you guys would change. I do already have a Corsair TX650W that I hope to use if its compatible and also already have a 240 gig ssd for a boot drive. Not sure what the best memory to buy?

Software firewall prevents me from seeing the picture.  I assume you have plenty of RAM and a 2nd internal platter-driven HD for her video files, edits, projects, and so on?  And, hopefully you can wedge into the build budget any affordable external media and either free or fee backup / restore / clone software for routine backups, or the occasional clone.

Just curious why you would build a computer for simple home use.

 

See this list of budget desktops and price compare if it is cheaper to build than buy...

That's too good for minor video editing.

 

Damn, it is even good for good gaming.

 

You must love your wife so much to give something as such.

 

Go Proceed.  :clapping:  :thumbup2:

How intensive is the video editing? Basic video editing can be done on a much cheaper system. Personally, I'd wait for the Ryzen 3 CPU's to come out as they offer a nice in-between with the Pentium G4560 and the Ryzen 5. The current market between these two is the i3 units which aren't worth getting due to them having a measly 2 cores and 4 threads which may struggle in some video editors. Of course this is all entirely dependent on what your wife does and it may turn out that a G4560 is all you need.

Looks OK to me.  I'm sure it will handle casual video editing or even heavy video editing with ease.  I think for many the R7 1600 is better value as it comes with a half decent heatsink, and the speed difference is not so great.  You will need a video card also. Something simple like - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/XQH48d/msi-geforce-gt-1030-2gb-lp-oc-video-card-gt-1030-2g-lp-oc should do.

As always, Windows 10 should be retail https://pcpartpicker.com/product/wskwrH/microsoft-os-kw900016

And SSD should be MLC https://pcpartpicker.com/product/qnCrxr/adata-256gb-25-solid-state-drive-asu900ss-256gm-c

If you buy a Ryzen, you may want to choose one which were not 'x' series so you don't have to buy a HS and cooler.

 

No need for a black HDD, just go for a blue. You forgot to select a case.

 

If the results for editing are not good, then buy  nvidi quadro, never a gaming GPU.
