Picture/Video Editing PC Build Help


If anyone could help me with this build I'd appreciate it greatly. Below is an outline of the parts/budget I have so far discovered. I have built several systems in the past, and am an IT professional (technically competent), however I'm a bit behind the times (last build was Athlon XP2100+, overclocked to 2400).

My plan is to have the system boot off an SSD drive, install apps, and do my editing there, then move to 1.5TB HDD storage (RAID1) so I don't have to wait for a long backup process.

BUDGET GOAL: <$2,000 (Currently @ $2,200)
1. Photo Editing (Adobe)
2. Video Editing/DVD Burning
3. Web/Docs/Office work
4. Gaming (far 3rd place)
PREFERRED SITE: Newegg (but open to suggestions)
Monitor: Samsung P2770H (1920x1080)
Keyboard: Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard/Mouse 5000
OVERCLOCKING: Yes, however want system to be stable and reliable (sacrifice a bit of speed to achieve this)

Thank you for your time and help with this build.
