    Do you think this will handle 3D 1080p SBS Videos?

    I think it should be OK:

    I would get this PSU:

    Also,the 65W TDP A8-5500 or A10-5700 will be better to use,as the motherboard will be under less strain,and the system should run cooler.

    I have changed some bits as I didn't like the case really. But it's more or less the same but now only has a 220w PSU but that should be powerful enough. If not I will swap it out later on.

    I notice you've spec'ed just a single stick of 1333 4Gb RAM? You'd be better off going for 2x2Gb of 1600 RAM really, to make use of the full memory bandwidth, as the integrated graphics will need as much as possible. The price difference between the RAM should be quite small too.
