I would recommend getting a 7850 if you want to try to maintain your budget.

FX-8320, 990FX chipset, 7850 GPU, solid PSU and a case with a side window/screen so you can show off the guts. There are better heat sinks out there, but for a budget I think the 212 will do the trick for that CPU so that you can get a bit of an OC out of it. Also, you can OC that 7850 and it stays cool. It is such a good price right now and plays games at 1080p no problem for me, not maxed out, but high settings with AA turned on to at least 2x. So for editing and what not, it will for sure do the trick and you can game a bit as well. Then, the CPU and the MoBo are solid which means if you decide to upgrade the GPU you can, especially with new GPU's coming out sooner than later; and you have some room to upgrade with that 550W PSU. Cheers.

Of course every brand has some lemons.
But it still doesn't change the fact that almost every major review site will list the brands I mentioned as superior products.
