Could someone give me some advice on if this design would be compatible and work well or nay?

Its got to be used as a home computer aswell, but the main purpose is for editing video recordings and for creating images and documents, kind of an all rounder. If you can get a better build with a graphics card within a similar budget, would someone recommend it. I already have a copy of XP with an authentication code ready for when the systems together.

I wouldn't really want to spend over £400.

Motherboard :
ASUS M3N78-AM GeForce 8200 Socket AM2+ 6 Channel Audio MATX Motherboard - £54.04 - free delivery

Processor:
AMD Phenom X4 9650 2.3GHz Socket AM2+ 2MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor - £106.98

Ram:
OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 Gold Memory - £42.99

Case:
Coolermaster Elite 330 Black Case With CM eXtreme Power 460W PSU *SPECIAL OFFER* - £57.91

Hard drive:
Seagate ST3500320AS 500GB Hard Drive SATA II 7200rpm *32MB Cache* - OEM - £48.49

Disk Drive:
Samsung TS-H653B 20X Black SATA DVD?RW Dual Layer Bare Drive - OEM - £15.89


Total : £326.30

Cheers, Joe :wave:

The PSU is on the weaker end. A good 600w or higher will ensure stability while leaving room for future upgrades. Windows XP 32-bit can only effectively use about 3.5GB of RAM, so keep that in mind if you aren't using a 64-bit version. If you plan to do more video work in the future then a 64-bit OS and more RAM would be a worthwhile investment.

Other than that I'd say you're good to go.
