I'm currently working on my first computer build as the title says and I need some input on what you guys think Here's what I have:
Motherboard - ASUS M4A78LT-M AM3 AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Memory - Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PGD38G1600ELK
Hard Drive - HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.C 0F10383 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Power Supply - COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-500-PCAR-A3-US 500W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply

Case - COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
basically need to know what should be and can be used with everything. I'm a total noob with this but have done a good amount of research with PC building. And this will be used for things like video/photo editing and gaming. Would it work well with doing these?
Thanks for your help and sorry I just copied what the product name was. I wasn't sure if it would be relevant or not. :D

Get a Samsung HD. They're the most reliable. Get Corsair PSU, a 650 will be plenty. I'd say wait to for bulldozer to come out. it will drop the price of that CPU like a rock. Get a 800 series motherboard. They will be compatible with bulldozer too!

my roommate has a slightly higher spec amd system than what you posted and his from day one has been nothing but probs. personally i would look at the intel i3's / i5's.

It would work, but don't expect to be able to do everything at once.
