Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Yes, you can use Blender for that, but you will have to spend some time to actually learn Blender (I personally find Blender rather unintuitive, but I haven't tried it with the new UI) and you will need a somewhat powerfull machine to get reasonable render times.
An extra video editor is not necessary, Blender has a good one already inbuilt.
Yes, it should give you somewhat good render times if you don't use too complex scenes. In general you will get better performance with more cores than with higher frequency and if you use the proprietary AMD driver for that videocard it may even be possible to use OpenCL to let the card help with the rendering, but I haven't looked into that.
I would just give it a try and see what you can do. After all Blender is free and there are plenty of tutorials available on the web (including Youtube videos).
