So here it is:

Approximate Purchase Date:October-December

Budget Range: 1000-1500$

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video/Photo Editing, Rendering, Uploading for YT

Are you buying a monitor: Nope

Parts to Upgrade: Everything, but Monitor, Mice and Keyboard

Do you need to buy OS: Don't Know

referred Websites for Parts: Newegg/Amazon

Location: I'm from Brazil, but im travelling to US, in october-december, so...

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU, but for GPU, doesn't matter :D 

Overclocking: Maybe(don't know how to do it, though)

Nope, that's ok, i'll probably just buy the case here in Brazil. Im thinking of an HAF 922, or an HAF 912 Plus, what you think?

The HAF 912 is good but if you can get like a Corsair 300R that will be better. The reason I suggest buying locally as well will not only be the video requirements (I'm not sure if Brazil uses PAL or NTSC format) but the power and voltages as well. American PSUs might not carry well over to Brazil without using an adapter.
