Im about to buy this build tomorrow.

Im using for gaming and video editing but i have a problem to choose a case. It says the mother board has a frontal 3.0 usb port and my case doesnt. Can somebody help me choose one that is compatible?

That's fine it just means you won't have usb 3 on your case, it will be usb 2
Also that is very unbalanced for gaming. You should focus more on the video card. Get a larger psu (450w) and then get a gtx 760. If thats out of your budget, get a cheaper motherboard and an i3.

Corsair 500R Black ATX Mid Tower Case 100$ with 40$ discounts so 60$ limited time offer
has a light though so might be annoying in that aspect

Im not planning ultra settings on gaming just something nicely playable and nice fps and light video editing.
I dont know if it thats still too unbalanced. Im really new on this.

My max budget is $850 dlls. Im really confused i´ve been looking for set ups but when im almost sure one theres something wrong.

For some reason I can't edit my posts or reply to you on this thread so I'll need to post individual posts.

It will game very well, the 270x is better than the 750ti for gaming and should play most games smoothly with high settings.
