might be best for a 2x8gb ram kit instead of 4x4. rest looks great, maybe a gtx 770 if it doesn't push you over budget

Thanks! I am getting 16GB of RAM because I do a lot of video/photo editing. I have 8GB and I just feel like it's not enough. I also don't mind spending the extra bit.

That's perfectly fine, you didn't specify in your first post so I just defaulted to my normal recommendation. 16GB definitely sounds best.
