Nice... I'm running 3 24inch 1920x1200 BenQ's in surround (no 3D) on 2 GTX 570's.

If you are doing Video editing, I would use a big green 2TB drive to store your stuff. I would also create a scratch (work) Raid 0 drive (2 or 3 drives) to do video editing on. I wouldn't do editing on your SSD drives as the multiple writes would wear them out (in theory) faster than normal -imoa.

Storage:
Seagate Barracuda Green ST2000DL003 2TB

Raid drive should enterprise level like the WD RE3/4 Series or Seagate constellation:
