Well, a 2500k, 6950 2GB, and a Z68 Extreme4 gets you up to around $700, which leaves you enough room for a really nice case, solid power supply and a spinpoint F3 1TB HDD.

That's what I'm planning on building for gaming, but I'm not sure if there will be better alternatives for video editing.

Edit: Forgot RAM. 8GB of DDR3 1600 will add about $100 to that.

Well, if he's looking to overclock, keep the 2500k; but there are a few alternatives in the ix-2xxx series such as the i7-2600k which performs like the i5 in gaming, but has 4 extra threads for video editing/encoding. You could also go with the i3-2100 which will provide you with some gaming capabilities and it is hyperthreaded. The downside is it has a locked multiplier, so not much overclocking.
