Is this build OK for some video editing and some gaming?

I want to build a cheap computer and don't want to spend a lot of money for my first computer

Would this be a good computer for video editing and some gaming? I want to play BF3 at least on High @1080p getting an FPS around 30 frames

For heavily threaded applications, possibly video editing, you may want to get a better cpu, but that build will run BF3 fine.

Please no Intel fanboys as well. I know this board is mostly i5/560ti for some reason. Like you all built your computer together

People here aren't Intel fanboys, they're simply practical. The truth is, Intel beats AMD at every price point in the performance cpu market.

I will most likely be using Adobe premiere to edit videos. Is that really heavily threaded? I know a lot of people use Sony Vegas but I would think that uses a lot of resources.

Well, I see the requirements on games and it says quad core AMD or Intel cpu so I feel like if you use any it should work fine. I know that Intel is better but to get an i5 and a Z77 motherboard, I probably will be adding almost 200 more dollars.

psu, hard drive, cpu, motherboard are all poor choices. the card can handle BF3 on high preset as I know first hand, but depending on the map or how many players, it will lag badly at times. an i3 would compliment it better.

Wow the price on the 6870 has skyrocketed a bit. Looks like its phasing out or something.

An i3 would not bottleneck any card? I feel like since that is a dual core and requirements usually say quad core, I can't believe that it would beat it. Say if I were to upgrade to maybe an Nvidia 600 series card, would the dual core start bottlenecking it? I will also be recording gameplay probably with msi afterburner, would the quad core come in handy here?

The i3 would be better than the Phenom II at any rate, so even if the i3 does bottleneck, it won't be as bad as the Phenom II.
