Low cost 3D video editing and "gaming" conf

Want to use it with PowerDirector to edit 3D FullHD landscape videos and with CryEngine 3 SDK to create such 3D videos.

My present conf after many cross check (appear I need both a good CPU for video editing and a good GPU for "gaming" design) it's

Mobo AsRock 970 Pro3/Extreme3
GENERIQUE Radeon HD 7870 OEM - 2 GB GDDR5 - PCI-Express 3.0 (AMD-7870)
AMD FX-8320 Black Edition - 3,5 GHz - Socket AM3+ (FD8320FRHKBOX)
CORSAIR RAM DDR3 CORSAIR DDR3 8GB 1600Mhz Vengeance CL8[2x4GB][CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8]
SEAGATE Hard disk Barracuda 7200.14 ST1000DM003 3,5" - 1 TB
LEPA PSU PC B550-SA 80PLUS Bronze
Case Cooler Master Elite 241/370/k280/?
+wifi card, keyboard, Win8

My questions are: Pro3 mobo it's a bit cheaper than Extreme3, will be the same for my use or better a Extreme 3?
Also I want a compact case since I don't need expansions, but a 241 will be working good as cooling? Also some case state usb2 vs usb3 support, need I to care about? I was thinking its mobo dependent. Also I can't really understand the difference about the various Elite/k/etc Cooler master case lines.
Also I can't find test about Generique GPU, will be good or too noisy/hot? I'm not interested to OC, think its powerful enough.
Also I need to install a Win8, can I do that using USB stick?
Need I also something else (such as internal coolers/fan)?

Budget: cheaper as possible (about £500), I can't use Newegg or so since I'm not USA based.

Thanks in advance!

If ya Video editing, ya want CUDA and that means an nVidia GPU.

As for the rest of ya build, I can't much comment as I have never done an AMD based video editing build..... I generally only do AMD unde $750 or so and all the video editing builds I have done are $1200 - $3000

Ummm, that would be incorrect, first of all that is only on Adobe products, that is virtually the only place CUDA acceleration exists. This means that if the OP is using an Adobe Video Editor (as with the others they actually support AMD GPU acceleration) then he should get nvidia. But there is a catch to getting nvidia for Adobe, is that AMD acceleration is coming to Adobe and it's 20%+ faster than CUDA acceleration therefor the AMD build is justified.

Also using CryEngine 3 it is optimized for AMD cards, so therefor again a much more warranted purchase is in order.

AMD Builds are fine and this looks good now to answer you questions:

1. Pro3 in a nutshell is the same, you will get everything that you want out of it.
2. You really should not care if the case has USB headers as the mobo already has some. As well as the case you selected has decent airflow you shouldn't need much more.
3. You should ideally be looking at a different brand, the stock cooler really will not cut it, as it will be both hot and loud. You for this you can look to Gigabyte or a different brand to meet your needs, the price will only be $10 more tops.
4. You can install Windows8 with a usb, you must have a larger one though.
5. You do not need extra fans/coolers if you do not plan on overclocking, though it is recommended.

So Elite 241 will be fine?
I can buy VTX3D or Sapphire at about the same price, both are good?

Any of them are fine, it comes down to personal choice really...

Last question: about Elite 241 you think can have cooling problems?
I haven't found any review about his use in gaming/video environment, I'm just a bit concerned. But still want a compact case!
