Additional Comments: The case i would like is the Phanteks Enthoo Primo. Is water cooling better then air cooling? If so i would go towards water cooling.

Im SERIOUS about Photo/Video editing so If you could focus on those areas of the computer it would be great. I also love games and plan on playing some.

    I would say I'm tempted to tear down the GPU in favor of going towards a 4930K build with 32GB RAM. Or at least a 4820K build with 32GB RAM. This could be useful for your editing work, not at all for gaming.
