Hello,
I'm looking to make a computer that will be used to play games and also used for video editing and graphic design. Below are the specifications:

NZXT Phantom 820 Full Tower Case

Intel Core i7 4930K Extreme Hex Core CPU
Asus SABERTOOTH X79 Intel Socket 2011 Motherboard
Kingston HyperX Beast 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 2400MHz Desktop
Seagate 7200.14 3TB SATA III 3.5" Hard Drive
TWO x EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked with ACX Cooler 4GB Graphics Card
Samsung 840 EVO 500GB 2.5-inch Basic SATA Solid State Drive
Corsair RM1000 1000W Power Supply 80 Plus Gold
Corsair Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance CPU Cooler

Is everything for this computer compatible and do you have any helpful suggestions? Also would I need a 1000W power supply or just a 850/950W.

Thanks for your help guys :)

Looks pretty compatible, you'll maybe need to update the bios on the mobo to support the 4930K cpu, i would really cut down on the ssd and get two GTX780's intead... The SC + 4GB makes the jump to 780 pretty small. And even for two 780's you'll only need a 850W psu, though DON'T get the RM850W since it's pretty bad for it's pricerange when we look at the quality, take a look at this tier list:

So the motherboard will be fine once I update the bios or would you recommend getting another motherboard? As for the graphics card should I get TWO x EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3GB SC Edition Card then cut down on my SSD? I presume with two GTX 780's the performance would be better.
