Well if you are going to be legally backing up movies that you own, you are going to need more than an SSD, as the limited capacity of an SSD will quickly fill up.

Also I doubt you will go very far with any game using the on-board graphics, you might get playable frames on the lowest settings with non-demanding games. (Adobe utilities can also be accelerated with CUDA processing)

what graphics card could you recommend me then

that would be suitable enough for some modern games.

ssd caching is the feature i like in the Asus z68 Pro
and will use the igp along with the added dedicated graphics that you suggest me, to play the games.
You can get a 460 for around that price on newegg. You can overclock it to squeeze some more performance out of it.
