I am looking to build a computer in the next 8 months. I have decided to start shopping and pricing some components. My goal is to spend $700-1000 to build a good computer for video processing and some light gaming gaming. Not looking for the end-all, but a good bang for buck computer.
Currently I have a 2.3 GHz Intel i7, 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 memory, an Nvidia GeForceGT 650M graphics card, and a 480 GB SSD. This is a good machine overall for me, but I wouldn't mind it being a little faster, especially on the graphics front. I already have keyboard, monitor, mouse etc.
I have to get rid of this computer completely, and start from scratch within the next 8 months. What recommendations do you have for my build?

Technology and prices change too fast for that time frame. Come back in 7 months and ask the same question.
I understand that for SSD and graphics. Other parts don't change nearly as fast (power supply, case, etc.) I need it built BY 8 months from now, so I was planning to start the build in the next month or two so I can begin using before the deadline.
