I've narrowed down my choice of components for my Video Editing PC Build. I'm looking for some last minute input before I pull the trigger. :) 

My goal is to have a PC that handles my current video editing needs... as well as one that can be upgraded in the future.

I'm using After Effects/Premiere Pro/ Photoshop/Lightroom etc
I want to utilize CUDA.

I currently edit HD / AVCHD/ DSLR Video

No Gaming

The more expensive build utilizes 1866 CAS 9 RAM...(as opposed to 1600 CAS 10 RAM) I'm not sure how important this is for my needs.

All constructive input appreciated...

That PSU is very overkill in both builds. 650w is more than enough.

OS to Samsung Pro , Smalles SSD is for cashe only. Video editing software is using this.
2 HDD to raid 0 because you need fasl load. 3TB drive is for material that has been edited.
Video card is bit overkill. GTX 650 or 660 is fine with build. But 760 is new so it did get in this build.
You can drop it down to GTX 660 or 650 if budget is tight.

Hope this helps :)
