Not at all. Reason: Windsor does not have a DDR3 Controller. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_AM2 and http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/305679-30-ddr3

it depends on how much you want to spend. MSI has metal PCI slots, instead of plastic, while ASUS has highend mobo's with plastic covers all over the entire mobo. ASUS also has mid range mobo's that have specific color's to match with different builds. Gigabyte has some really good basic to midrange mobo's, but really, most motherboards from these manufactures all look the same. But you can find just about any feature you want from them, even I/O Shield Lighting.

I would recommend not going RAID with the SSD's. The performance and speed of the ssd's is more than enough without RAID, and it would save you cash. That, and it lets you have a large boot drive, and a nice large storage drive. You can also go with an Air CPU cooler to save some cash, if you don't plan to overclock. The AMD cpu won't get any benefit from video editing software's programming, so it will be very brute force; effective, and cheap.

something like this? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LpcFkL

I'll be more specific then. I need something that is quiet to type on, so that rules out Mechanical.

as for the GTX950, what are the specs on it?

The peripherals just need to work, but be above average quality. Something something backlit.

But yeah, I think I'll go with Skylake, as this build is being built one part at a time, and I may as well go with the most modern/updated chips. I do appreciate your help, as you showed me that GTX 750, which should be enough for what I need.

The maximum would be 32gb, but 16 gb is the minimum. From what I've read, going with 2 sticks vs 4 should be better. The question I have is, after looking at the build, is Registered Ram really important for the application?

yeah, that turbine setup was fun! and with them connected to the fan controller, they are really quiet and cool!

I didn't have a problem with these wires. All the header wires were clearly labeled, and they did seem secure in their plastic connector housing.

that board and chip set comes with a onchip/onboard GPU. I didn't want that for this build, as I already had a video card. Plus, this was a bit cheaper at the time.
