Question would this be a good build for adobe products and games?

Essentially i want a pc for games and adobe products (like flash and premier pro cs6 for example).However for the performence i want i still need a little extra money (around 150). i have a build in mind that i want but i wanted some other peoples thoughts on it and will it still be a good build come christmas time? the budget is still pretty undecided but here are the specs:

antec 300 case(39.99)
antec earthwatts 380w atx 12v 80 plus (34.99)
Seagate 1TB Barracuda SATA 6Gb/s 64MB 7200RPM Hard Drive(64.99)
Asus P8Z77-V LX motherboard, Intel Core i5-3570K & 8GB DDR3(bundled pack) (349.99)
Asus AMD Radeon 7770 HD 1GB PCI-Express 3.0 HDMI DirectCU TOP gpu (109.99)
and then 174.18 for everything else (moniter, mouse, os etc) brings the overall cost to 778.65

I also made an alternate amd build with the same specs and that came to 660.

I am still stuck between AMD and intel but anyway; any thoughts?

First problem here is the PSU. You will need around 600w and I suggest a good Corsair PSU to do this.

Depending on the games in question the 7770 will be ok, but will lack in certain games like BF3.

Intel all the way.

Aswell as what Pp Said, Antec power supplies are quality units too, Though you do need about 600Ws.

I usually also recommend upper level Antec, they are usually more affordable than Corsairs.

Either one of these: Laptops, Computers, PC Components, MP3 players, Software, Digital Cameras and more - dabs.com is a good choice
