I would be using this computer for playing some moderate games, editing pictures with Photoshop, editing videos for Youtube and such, and storing lots of music. I usually multi-task to the point where I am listening to music, browsing the web, and using Photoshop. I already possess a legal copy of Windows 7-64bit that I will be installing on it. I also have a 23inch 1080p Dell monitor which is more than enough for me. I would like to be running games at at least 60fps on max settings and seeing as I don't own many graphically intense games that won't be hard. I plan on getting Battlefield 3 however. Thank you very much for all your help guys, I love this community by the way.

P.S. Don't hesitate to ask further questions. I need your help.

How about this build?

CPU+Mobo Combo: i5-2500K + MSI P67 GD-65 $380
PSU: Corsair TX650 V2 $80 after rebate
Case: CM 690 II Advanaced $80 after rebate
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2GBx2 $40
GPU: HD6950 2GB $240 after rebate OR GTX 460 Ti $235 after rebate
Cooler: CM Hyper 212+ $40

Total: $860

Btw, I've seen the Hyper 212+ sell for less than $30.
You should do some research and get it for less.
Same goes for the case.

I'd choose the TX650 over the Earthwatts simply because of the warranty.
TX650 also comes with sleeved cables as well.

I personally LOVE the ASRock Extreme4, but you can't pass a great combo deal like that IMO.

Edit: Woops, I forgot to add HDD there. Go with the Samsung F3 1TB and downgrade your gpu to something like this.

Had to keep within the budget. I don't play many games anyways.

Found a CPU/Ram combo. G.Skill Snipers 2x4gb 1600mhz plus the 2500k <3. Only $300.

I'd get a Antec True Power New 650 instead of the green. Its a higher quality PSU and usually costs about the same.
Edit: The PSU guru discusses them here.
