Please help with budget gaming build!
Hello I have been researching for a long time on the best budget gaming build. I have decided on this AMD build (this is the first time I will build a computer):

What I would plan to do with this build is buy a new video card later on and crossfireX it with the original one. I think that the CPU will last quiet awhile so I won't have to worry about that. Is this build good for what I would like to do (minecraft highest settings, Sony Vegas...) also would it be better to go with this processor or Intel in the same price range? I read on a review on the FX-6300 (which I have in the build) that said it outperformed intel's latest i3s and older i5. A few more questions:
1. Would my CPU be bottlenecked by the graphics card, and if I crossfireX will it be bottlenecked?
2. Would I need an after market CPU fan (I had one added in the build) or since AMD updated their stock fans with the new processors could I just keep the stock and it will run cool?

Could anyone recommend any better parts and is the build compatible, will it run fast? I plan to build this before Christmas so I can wish for the monitor for Christmas, but will have to buy mouse and keyboard, if anyone could suggest a good monitor $100-$200 and a budget gaming mouse and keyboard together >$100
Thanks in advance!

I show your list as being empty, it's not a private list is it? That mysavedwishlist part of the link means you linked only the private one, you need to make it public and let us see that link.

Okay sorry here is the proper link (I think)
Newegg.ca - Once You Know, You Newegg

Also the total price (shipping and taxes) costs $890!!!!!!
Is there anyway to reduce that?

Intel or AMD Please Help!
Ok i have been looking up at a lot of reviews since the last post and am once again on the fence between Intel and AMD... I have 2 builds chosen that i am stuck between. I plan to play Minecraft at highest settings and do some video editing/creation with Sony Vegas. I plan to later on CrossfireX another video card in, is the Sapphire HD7770 Vapor-X a good graphics card for what i plan to do? Will the i3 be bottlenecked by the graphics card? And do the builds general work well and are compatible? And finally, which one?!?!?!?!?!?
