I want to stay under $1500 and go lower than I already have now. I want the GPU to be able to play BF3 at good settings at 1080p and I want it to be powerful enough to video encode somewhat fast.

Here's a few options to look at. Also you might want to hold off on the sound card until you hear the on board sound.

There are lots of ways, and it comes down to personal preference.

Here are a few things about the build that stand out to me:

Get a Hyper 212 EVO instead of the Noctua - the performance difference is minor.

With BF3, Photoshop, and 20 tabs open, I don't use more than 6GB of ram. 8 will be plenty for you.

A sound card that cheap won't hardly be an improvement over the onboard sound.

Do you really, REALLY need the wireless components? Because you could either get them the same quality but miles cheaper, or way way better quality for the same price.
