this will be my first time building a pc mainly because its cheaper,
I have a budget of about 1000 (including tax and shipping i live in california)
the main uses will be Editing with AAE, Premiere, and some gaming
I dont care if its intel or AMD
also will i be able to run most games on high? (Crysis, COD 4, L4D2, maybe a little SC2, games like that)
Resolution : 1920 x 1080

Also if they're any improvements i can make and stay in my price range please let me know what they are.

is it any good?
 
Hmm by my count that would be $885 and since vid edit/premiere on the table

A case for GPU computing: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and the Mercury Playback Engine
http://tech.icrontic.com/articles/reviews/a-case-for-gpu-computing-adobe-premiere-pro-cs5-and-the-mercury-playback-engine/

So does this project suggest that Mercury Playback does not actually affect the performance of the editor? Not necessarily. This project consists of compressed 640×480 video footage. These small video files were being eaten alive by the massive 1090T hexa-core processor and 8GB of RAM. Premiere Pro CS5′s increased performance with multi-core systems coupled with bleeding fast hardware will make fast work of any simple projects such as this, not giving the GPU enough work to really make a difference. These results do suggest that if you’re editing small-time video footage, you will not benefit much from using Mercury Playback.

I can second most of what batchuka suggested. The motherboard didn't really convince me though. The reviews for this motherboard actually look ok, but if it were my main build I would go with something a little more trustworthy, such as a GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128435. An extra 65 bucks would upgrade your CPU to a 1090T for about 10~20% overall gain on CPU intensive tasks.

Since you asked, both your build and batchuka's will run most games on high @ 1900x1200. As for Crysis, the old VGA hog, just don't do AA nor max the shader settings and you should be ok.

also if i was to get the cpu cooler would I need thermal paste for it?

would this one work with my build?
theres also an MSI mobo I was looking at the runs about $109 with a combo and the one vv there is $108 with $15 instant

1. Unless someone finally posts a factual tabulated data of all mobo brands at the *same* pricepoint and % RMA when freshly bought, etc one should refrain from assuming brand X > Y because all/any mobo maker makes both gems/lemons at various price points. If one has no need for 8/8 CF any 890GX is a painful and useless top up

2. Also negative on premium paid for 1090T:

1055T + TA880GB+ with T-Series auto OC utility

This was even on stock HSF + rudimentary value RAMs @@
