  1. Clear, 650w psu is fine.
    Try get a Nvidia 750 ti
  2. Nope x3 on the xion psu unless your goal is to blow up all your hardware!

    Grab a Seasonic or XFX psu, 600-650w

    Don't need an i7 for gaming, grab an i5-4670 (if you plan to over clock grab a k version), not sure if your video editing software will utilize the i7 enough to make it worth the extra $100

    Get an gtx 750ti for $150

    You will probably need a 1 or 2 TB HD in addition to your SSD

    Threw this together if you want to keep an i7 and overclock. Im not too great at picking motherboards, HDDs or cases so someone can probably make this better.

    Also, i know pretty much nothing about after market coolers which you would probably need for overclocking.

    Edit: Changed case to avoid compatability issues.

    If your focus is more gaming, less video editing then the build would change to an i5 and more powerful graphics card
