If you're gonna get an H110 Motherboard and a 1050, might as well get an i3 to save. Else, I'd recommend going with a 1060 and a B150 Mobo. I also would like to see an SSD.

If you really want to video edit and play games "effectively," I'd suggest saving up or finding some serious deals. Since you're willing to wait until a 1050 comes out, you can probably save up a bit more cash and the prices of Graphics cards should probably drop.

The lowest MOBO to get for an i5 is a B150.

As for the Graphics Card, prices are awfully inflated right now. Try to find a cheap RX 480 perhaps.

Also, an i3 is still a viable option for gaming at a budget. Don't look down on it. For video editing, the i3 actually still holds its own against CPUs with more cores.

Its nice... the 1060 3 GB is sorta a 1050 and 1060 compromise. It won't be the full power of a 1060, but still work "right well."

3 gb and 6gb GPUs are not THAT different, 1060 3gb still beats 970
