typically amd graphics card are better bang for buck but i hear the cuda cores in nvidia cards help alot when it comes to video editing. also i went with the 4gb version as bf4 recomends 3gb. and it only comes in 2/4GB flavours.

Honestly I would drop the memory to 8gb to start, and spend the money saves on a gpu like the 770 or 670, or even a HD 7970, unless you wanna go cheap and wait for the amd R200 series and replace the low end gpu later. This being that his priority is set on a gaming more than video editing, and can later throw in 8gb of ram. Correct me if you think I am wrong. Cheers on the build ;)

This is the Build i am making its alittle over your budget but if you get a 600w psu instead of 750w and a 7950 instead of 7970 you can probably save the £50. Maybe swap the fx 8320 for fx 6300 if you need to save a lil more money.

I Think its right in the sweet spot for Price/Performance.
