Hey guys! Im starting my very first PC build and was wondering what you guys think about my specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H
CPU: i7- 4770k
GPU : EVGA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM: 16gb (2 sticks of 8gb)
HDD: 1 TB Seagate Barracuda
Power Supply: Corsair CX750M (750 watts)
Case: NZXT Guardian 921RB
DVD/CD Drive: ASUS DRW-24B3ST
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit

I do not plan on overclocking. I plan to play most recent games at atleast medium-high settings. I also plan to use many multimedia applications such as Photoshop or Video Editors. What do you think? Is it a decent build?

He said he will be video editing so hyper threading in the i7 will be helpful for him.
