Have you ordered the computer/parts yet? If not, wait a sec.

Don't go with an APU if you are going to use a discreet graphics card. The APU may be listed as having a many cores but some if not most of them are for generating graphics and not processing. In other words, you are buying something you will not use and thereby wasting money.

If you are going with AMD then go with an AM3+ CPU and board. An FX-8320 or FX-8350 will give you eight cores of actual processing power. An Asrock AM3+ board would be a good choice. I am running an MSI AM3+ board with an 8320 and have no complaints.

Now if those are the specs for a prebuilt that uses onboard APU graphics then it will boil down to which APU/CPU it has in it. It would probably run both programs but you will now have awesome speeds or framerates.

Looks reasonable to me, but if you're working to a budget (assuming about $600), you'd be better off getting a cheaper i5 (maybe a 4460) and spending the extra money by putting it towards a slightly better graphics card (maybe a GTX960).

At the moment I'd say the build is more CPU oriented, if you're using it primarily for gaming a GTX960 would be a slightly better choice. However, it looks to be a solid build.

Do you already have a DVD drive?

Depending on the video-editing program you use, you'll benefit from a more powerful graphics/video card far more than a better CPU. A video card is far more effective at rendering videos, and they will perform far faster than a CPU.

Again, depends on the program though, some don't support GPU rendering.
