Hi everyone - I'm about to build a new digital audio workstation/occasional video editing system and wanted to ask if anyone sees any conflicts or just has general advice in the event I'm overlooking something or am way off in some of my choices (quite possible). Because digital audio can be demanding, AND because the last time I got a new computer was 6 years ago, I figured I'd go for top of the line components. Here are the parts I'm considering (Newegg). Thanks for all your comments in advance.

Thanks for the advice, I will definitely look into the SSD. My only concern is that 160GB might not be enough..

When you use an SSD, load the OS and core apps on it, then put everything else on mechanical hdds, should fit just fine
