I`m almost finished with my build, and I`ve found that Intel i7-2600k was very good, because even if I like to game (I`want to play Mass Effect 3), I`m mostly use my pc to do work, and to edit video as a hobbie.
Now, I`ve checked out the AMD APU 8 and read that`s kinda equal to intel i7 2600k but cheaper... and I`m a little lost. This is my first build... what do you reccomend? I`ve read about the AMD FX8120 too.
If I change the intel processor, I have to change the mother. I`ve planned to buy the Asus P8Z68, but now... I just don`t know. I thought in replacing it for a ASUS M5A99X Evo (AM3+).
Go for an Intel i-5 2500k 3.3GHz, and an ASRock Extreme4 gen3 mobo. Those two are what I am basically running and they destroy most games alongside my 7950. Plus the i7 isn't a very good option for gaming right now due to it's perk (hyperthreading) being no existent in the gaming world.

You completely missed where he mentioned this build is mostly to do work and video editing. The i7 hyperthreading will do him well in that category.
There's always a first time for everything. Your choice of motherboard is excellent and definitely stick with the Intel. This time around AMD's processors are garbage and no one realy recommends them. I rather recommend an i3 over AMD as of right now. For GPU I definitely recommend Radeon though. Nvidia is falling behind until Kepler comes out maybe they'll cook something up.
Don't get the Radeon 6970 next week Monday supposedly the Radeon 7870 comes out and it performs better than the gtx 570 and in some cases better than the gtx 580 and for the $350 price tag it's a must have!
