currently this is what im looking at for the use of the system: dota 1/2, video editing, 3d simulation rendering, and 2d graphic creation (photo shop)
yeah so as i said i just want to know if this is going to far
or if there is a better build for this, withing the budget of (0$ to 850$)
or if any parts can be switched out for similar/cheaper parts
i was originally planning to build it mainly around the processor but im open to any type of suggestions that score high on rendering (both single and multi core) as well as scoring high on 3d modeling and gaming performance.

-Newer version of the 8120, also stronger.
-16gb of RAM will help in rendering and photoshop.
-Better cpu cooler.
-Cheaper motherboard. you don't need a 990FX chipset board.
-Dropped SSD. you can add one in later.
-Much stronger gpu.
-Better psu.
-Better case.

Is there a reason why you don't have RAM included in your build?

i must have just forgotten to add it, what type of ram would you suggest? i saw the slots the mother board has, but i can't really tell if having more than 32 gb is worth it or if 32 is good enough.
oh and i don't know about overclocking yet. i assume i would need a better psu to overclock, but what would i have to get the wattage upto to sufficiently overclock.

The XFX 550w should be enough to let you overclock, but you can always grab a 600-650w to be on the safe side.
16gb of RAM is sufficient for rendering and photoshop. 32gb is pretty overkill.
