well here it is:

CASE: BitFenix Prodigy Fire Red Edition Mini-ITX
CPU: intel core i7 3770K
MOBO: ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe
MEMORY: Kingston HyperX Beast 8GB (2x4GB) 2400MHz
SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB
HD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
VIDEO CARD: MSI Geforce GTX 670 PE
CPU COOLER: XIGMATEK Dark Knight II SD1283 Night Hawk Edition
POWER SUPPLY: CORSAIR HX series HX650 650W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified

Eric

Unless you removed the 3.5" flex cage, you are not fitting that GPU in that box. Also, is there a reason why you are going with an mini-ITX build?

Yes, doing a normal mid-tower build will be better. The motherboard is cheaper and you have more flexibility, though the Bitfenix prodigy has tons of flexibility. You don't have to worry about room. May I ask what your budget is?
Also, the Bitfenix prodigy has removable HDD bays. You can remove the top one and leave the bottom one, making room to fit gpus up to 320mm in length (the msi one is like 240-260mm) but also allows you to keep the bottom HDD cage for your HDD. For the SSD, you can basically put it anywhere. You can even put it on the back, just make sure it's secure and won't fall.

-16gb of ram will help in video editing.
-A big 256gb SSD at a really cheap price

-I just put in a 7970 since it should do better in games. If you still prefer the gtx670 as a personal preference, then by all means go with that
-The Fractal Design Define R4 is a really really good case with similar looks to the arc midi. The define r4 is known for being silent. It has a slick look to it too. If you don't like it, check out the Corsair 300R at newegg.com. They have it on a sale for $50.

Unless you're a super hard-core video editor, you won't really need the LGA2011. The i7-3770k will be at a much cheaper price and will perform a little worse due to the two less cores.

May I ask what price you could get the RAM for? DDR3-2133 is usually pretty expensive.
If you like NVIDIA, take out the gpu for a GTX670. The GTX680 offers little performance increase over the 670 for an extra $100.

Scratch the RAM thing. Can you list the price for every single part? (i.e: i7-3770k - $300)

Cheaper ram: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
Much cheaper, the difference between anything over 1600mhz is pretty minimal. You wouldn't notice much of a difference.

Grab the GTX680 if you know that it is new. At such a cheap price, it seems kind of sketchy though.

Cheaper board: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Cheaper psu, just as good :http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Will you really need a blu-ray drive?

how much does MHz matter in ram and i might plan on OCing the pc so i dont know if i need a higher MHz
and for the gtx 680 thats the price im trying to get him down to so i might have to get it for around $420 but thats still cheaper then the 670 and lastly id rather have a blu ray player because i do have blu ray movies and i'd like to be able to watch them on my pc plus for that money its not really a problem

There is only one i7-3770k. Not sure what you're talking about. The i7-3770k is an Ivy Bridge processor. You can tell because it is a 3XXX.
For the RAM, just buy the standard 1600mhz ram. If you want to oc it, you can bring it to like 1866 or 2000.

Everything looks really good, though the only thing I would change is the case. I have the rosewill challenger and it has horrid cable management. Here's some better options, but if you prefer the looks of the Challenger then go for it

Shipping really screws up the prices.

Yes, I believe CUDA will do better with adobe products.

Yes, I believe CUDA will do better with adobe products.


So would it be better for me to get the evga gtx 670 ftw video card? The only reason I like the 7970 is because the overclocked speed is faster then the gtx 670 ftw overclocked plus it comes with far cry 3 blood dragon, crisis 3 and bioshock infinite for free with purchase but if I need the Cuba cores then ill get the gtx 670 ftw and thanks for the info on the case

Supposedly, the next generation of Adobe Premier is going to have better integration with AMD products.

Also, change the PSU in your build. Consider the Rosewill CAPSTONE-750-M or XFX P1-750B-BEFX
