Looking for advice for my first build...

As the title states, I am finally working on building my first rig.  I haven't bought a computer in almost 10 years.  I acquired a Dell XPS 1530 about 7-8 years ago and about 4 years ago I got a small  Toshiba Ultrabook from a friend.  It is time I build my own machine that will hopefully stay with me for a while but I need to do it on a budget.  If you see my build I plan on getting, some stuff I already have but some I need to get.  I don't know about the GPU quality as it was just mentioned from a friend that he would give it to me.  My plans is to have an all around "good" machine.  I will do gaming, music production/recording, some video work as well as working with Hyper-V and such on it.  Any advice on what my plans are would be appreciated.
