Streaming/Gaming/Editing $2500 PC build for 1st timer

Hi forums, rookie PC builder here.

Long story short I have an alienware PC for past 2 years, it cost me $1500 or so when I bought it, but some of the components are so undervalued that its like a $700 PC. It can barely run games like League of Legends smoothly and running Photoshop just makes it laggy like hell. My roommate got help on Tom’s HW when he built his $2000 gaming PC last year (additional monitors included) but since the new haswell CPUs have been launched he is unable to guide me to build one of my own. So please, take a few mins out of your lives and make something work for me too guys :( 

Approximate Purchase Date: The coming Tuesday

Budget Range: $2500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Streaming, Gaming, Graphic Designing, Video Editing.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes





Do you need to buy OS: Yes




Location: San Luis Obispo, California

Parts Preferences: I have been told that the new Haswell CPUs and GTX700 series are decent. And we are asus rog mobo fanboys so if one of those can be thrown in life would be swell.

Overclocking: Maybe, since I’ve never actually done it before and learning how to atm.

SLI or Crossfire: Yes


Additional Comments: I plan to spend this much money also because I’d like it to be easy on the eye. My roomies have red-black and blue-white combos and both look beastly. Anything similar/different but aesthetically pleasing would be really appericiated.
Thanks in advance for putting your time in helping me.

Thanks for the quick reply AMD Radeon. Just a quick concern though, I'd be slotting in alot of storage and was wondering if a Full Tower case would suit my purposes or not, concering both storage and cooling? Also since i'll be saving a few bucks will it be viable to include two GTX 770s in sli? Also wouldnt a 27'' monitor be better? Sorry if the questions feel amateurish xD

YES, full tower case will help a lot :) 
27" IPS panel with qHD 2560x1440 resolution will be very good for professional editing

Thanks for putting time into the request younes, but could you make some slight changes to make the case full tower instead? I really dont want to choose on my own and end up getting one not suitable for my needs.

With that in consideration, can you please revise the build that you made AMD? Would really help me alot since I'm positive that any selection I make on my own will be pretty much a shot in the dark and I'd end up wasting my money.

EDIT: Also why isn't Windows 8 recommended for the build?

A bit tad over budget but is perfect foe editing and gaming. I wouldn't prefer a GTX 770 in SLI , as the GK104 chip cant utilise memory well , you will need a 4GB version , which costs approx 500 bucks for one GPU. The GTX 780 should also just be able to satisfy you needs well. The theme for the build is Red/Black. Also the Phantomn has enough hard drive slots. And if you want storage , try for 3/4TB drives , that way you can go up to 21 or 24 TB of storage. Thats enough for editors. I mean I am using a 240GB HDD for my clips and edits and thats along my OS , apps , pics , etc ( this is a macbook pro ). I am sure you won't be needing more than 10TB ( even if you store every edit you do on the PC itself ) Also there is just enough cooling for the PC.
And this build can support SLI so if you feel that your GTX 780 isn't just keeping up with your needs , you can SLI as the GK110 chip ( in the GTX 780 ) is just good for it.

Thank you for choosing me for best solution :)  . I did some research and it seems that you can't put the H110 in the Storm Trooper as it has 15mm spacing for radiators and the H110 radiator spacing is 20mm. The monitor you chose doesn't have 120hz so it's really not best for gaming especially when you're getting the GTX 780 which will give you a ton of fps for nearly every game out there and benefits a lot more with a 120hz monitor.

Yes,if you want to get that case I'd say go with the Kraken X60 as the Storm Trooper supports it,and as for the monitor I would choose the Benq:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824014270
It's a little on the pricey side but it's 3D ready and will definitely give you 120hz to assure you get more than 60 fps when gaming. Also don't forget to connect your GTX 780 to the monitor via DVI Dual link to actually put the 120hz in use,the cable comes included with the monitor.
