Gaming and photo/video editing are most important, Then movies most likely. Crysis, COD, Skyrim, that sort. High def, High speed video editing for school/work and gaming for every other time. :p  Bought and built my own desktop and now I need another one for my wife please. Buying as soon as the build is complete.
Here's where I am so far. Picking up CPU from microcenter at 169.99. Need a different mobo for OC I think. Just getting a basic keyboard and mouse nothing fancy. Do not need an OS. Will be buying a monitor as well. Any advice welcomed.

great build, need more touch on mobo+GPU

ASRock H77M Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
micro atx, i think you should choose a normal atx version :) 

and fyi, adobe software loves nvidia cuda core, opencl is supported, but not as good as CUDA. especially in premiere and AE, only CUDA works

Switched out mobo as suggested. You meant the graphics card as far as the cuda core? What would the price difference be to switch it to that kind?

So performance wise the gtx660 is comparable/better/worse than the 7850 card?

Also my case is out of stock. Any suggestions there?
