Is this system good for gaming and light video editing?

I want to know if this system can run games well (Not brand new games as I personally think they suck) and do some video editing as I wan't to start a gaming channel (I'm using AMD Game DVR for recording), anyway here are the specs:
CPU: Intel i5 4690 (non k)
GFX card: AMD R9 280 STRIX Asus
Storage 1: 120gb SSD (For Windows and a linux distro)
Storage 2: 2tb WD green (might get another 2tb in the future)
Mobo: Asus z87 / z97 (k) or msi z87 / z97 Gaming mobo
PSU: Corsair hx 750
Also I want to know if this power supply enough / too much for this system, I will be crossfiring in the future though it is in very distant future so I could upgrade the PSU at the same time.

  1. Best answer
    Seems to be a very nice system right in the sweet spot for i5 gaming systems.
  2. Yes, it's good!
  3. If you plan on crossfiring the distant future, by that time you might as well get a single stronger card.

    If you plan on crossfiring within a year or so, then keep the psu. Otherwise, get an xfx 550w or something.

    ifu install windows 7 64bit u r processor alone works like a graphic card..i think u no need to buy a discrete graphics card for gaming

    The integrated graphics on *all* processors are pathetic. He's quite correct in getting a discrete graphics card.
