I'd go for the gaming workhorse then add in 8GB of RAM rather than 4GB, if you want to save money down grade the Graphics card a bit but the 560 is a fantastic card
I say the gaming workhorse as the CPU will be doing a lot of the render work with editing and lots of memory is a must.
Soundcard really isn't needed either unless your doing music production on some nice high-end stuff

For instance my current system a Foxconn X38a chipset mobo socket 775 has two pciex16 2.0 both of which are x16 electrically even when both populated......I'm using an sli patch as the mobo chipset doesn't normally support sli and have two palit 2gb gtx460's sli'ed together and OCed to 820MHz from the stock of 675MHz.....matched with a Q6600 @3.5GH and 8Gb DDR2 this would shame all but your most expensive build in gpu limited gaming scenarios.
It really does play Crysis.......at max settings and 1920X1200.
