Like i said I need to edit these items to fit the $800/$900 Budget so tell me what i can replace. I will use it mainly for Gaming/Video editing and some Photoshop/3D motion graphics. This is my first build so i just want to get it right (and have it turn on,lol)

1rst GPU link does not work for me...

6950 is respectable midrange card....two in Crossfire are darn nice for gaming if your res is 1080P or above!

might be able to save a $100-$150 or more on a socket 1156/i7 combo over the 1366/i7, but the one you've chosen is quite solid
