So this is basically the build i came up with. I'm planning on using this comp for medium gaming, Photoshop, and video editing, and web browsing. I was wondering if there is any parts that i can get a better price and also still keep the good performance. If there is a build that is better then this and the budget is around $800, please recommend it to me.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH :)

Looks like a very good build, what i would sugest since you have a bit more room for budget is either a 64/120gb SSD.
The 64gig would leave you at 800$ and the 120 at around 850. You can instal OS and a couple of video software, it would
help a bunch with rendering times, and would make the software overall a bit faster.

Edit: never mind thsi you already have one O.o
Did you update the post i swear i saw a 1tb hdd in there.?!
