Yeah i'm building a gaming/editing pc with a budget around 1400 USD I need a monitor and keyboard. I am looking to get the new intels products and I want HT on my processor.

A Z97 board and aftermarket cooler with a locked CPU? That doesn't make very much sense, but other than that it's good for a mix of gaming and editing.

That build looks good!
I am a bit surpised you put twice as much money in your processor or graphics card than into your monitor, but why not if you do not care for a 24'...
I consider the 750W bronze psu somewhat overpowered (considering your CPU has a locked multiplier) and not very efficient. If I were you, I would take a 600-650W gold model instead.

Yeah, that didn't make sense at first either. But now I'm pretty sure it's because the PC is also for editing. The graphics card and monitor both shouldn't be cut for a pure gaming or photo-editing build, but for rendering stuff, color accuracy and graphics performance often does not matter as much.

All right there! Nice system. I like your PSU as well (checked a couple of tests on french sites showing no flaws for that model). I think you are good to go! And if you want to go for serious gaming, you can buy any single chip graphics card on the market later on, when 20nm cards are out!

Of course case is a matter of... personal opinion ;-)
