I need to build a gaming pc. I'm going to edit videos/ photos and record games while playing and have my antivirus runnin in the background. I've done a lot of research and have decided on these parts:

Do I need a sound card to use a headset?
I need advice, help me make my build better, my budget is $1650 and i need monitor, keyboard, mouse, headset with it too(all for gaming).

Thnx in advance!

Very solid build on the tower, can't make any recommendations really, you're even using my favorite mid tower right now. For the peripherals it's kinda to each their own, only thing is your monitor isn't an IPS type panel, which give the best picture quality.

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/acer-monitor-umvh6aa003 this is about where the prices start at for them.
