So I just turned 17 and I want to build a gaming PC. I want this PC for:

1. Hacknitosh - I will run Hacknitosh and Windows on this system.

2. Video Editing - I am going to start a YouTube channel and I want this computer to handle video editing

3. Gaming - I want to get into the latest video games like Battlefield 4, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, etc. and I want this PC to run them on the best setting possibles.

I have done 6 months worth of research and have made many builds (not physical but on pcpartpicker) but they have changed and now as of 3/31/2014 I have this build. Here is the pcpartpicker link: ( http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Moiz36/saved/4emw ). I want your opinion on this build and if it will be able to do what I want it to do. Also I have chose many Corsair parts because I want it themed that way. If there are possible solutions that will keep or increase the performance then please do give me a pcpartpicker link. Also, I will use the SSD to store the operating systems. Thank-you.

well at that budget you deserves much better parts
it is a revision of your build, with better price/performance parts selection
