    New system build specs -- need advice

    Seth Denlinger

      Hi guys,

       

      I posted this on Tom's Hardward and got the go ahead to order parts but I wanted to double check.

       

      I am a non-computer person building a computer to edit a 70 minute documentary movie. I've been doing some research and here is my parts list. I'm looking to order this in a week because I need to get going on this project. I plan on using Adobe Premier CS 6. I looked at a few different websites for this  project and came up with the following. If I've made a mistake, please just tell me what to replace it with (again, this is totally new territory and I'm going on just trusting folks who know this stuff.)  Here is the list.

       

      I'm not running games or lots of effects. I have a monitor.
