How good is this computer build for moderate gaming and light video editing?

I'm wanting to build a PC that can do these things:

Play Minecraft flawlessly

Play games such as Battlefield 3, Assassins Creed 3, Half Life 2, Portal 1 & 2, Etc as good as an Xbox 360.

Play Indie games really good (Such as Slenderman, Candles, Luna Games, SCP games, etc)

Play Video game emulators (Such as Project 64, Game Cube, Visual boy advance, SNES & NES Emulators, etc)

and do light video and sound editing.

This is my build I have so far. What can I do to make it better if possible. My cap is $1200 dollars. Yes I do want the Blu-Ray player as I'm going to have this plugged into a surround sound and is going to be connected to my TV so I can watch movies on it. (How I've always set up my computers)

    For what you have your parts are on the expensive side. You need more of a harddrive and you may want to get an i7. (its doable in $1200)
