You should wait for new gen. Intel processors launching in about a week's time.

Something like this should be good...

You probably need more storage than 1Gb SSD.

From my experience I have seen that Cuda parallel computing is usually more reliable and efficient than OpenCL for encoding and rendering. I would keep the card and think about more storage over that if required.
Most professionals usually use NVidia cards for editing. Doesnt mean that AMD cannot do the job.
