Hey,
I have never built a pc before and am very new to this, I want to build a low end budget gaming pc for less than £400 (roughly less than $550), I don't care about playing AAA games in the slightest, I do however want a fairly capable cpu to perform tasks such as video editing and be able to do programming without bad performance.

I'm thinking of going with the following parts:
GPU:
Radeon r9 290 2gb
Case: Kolink KLA-003 - I couldn't care less about how it looks, but will the parts fit?

Then this bundle from Ali-Express:
CPU
: Xeon E5 2620
RAM: DDR4 2666MHz (2*8gb)
Motherboard: HUANANZHI X99

This video has made out that buying from Ali-Express isn't a bad idea for low end pcs, does anyone disagree?
Also, will there be any incompatibilities with any of the parts? Any recommendations for different parts?

Thanks :)
