-The 120Hz monitors still shine even if ya don't use the 3D feature ..... it is fun tho, Batman was a kick

- The 2600k is the correct choice over the 2500k given the benefit of HT in video editing despite the $100 cost difference but if ya can justify that, the 2700k is only $50 more.

-Don't see the GFX logic as AMD GFX have no CUDA for that video editing.

-Consider the Pro version of the MoBo for $20 more.

-The 212 is great budget cooler but $2k is not a budget build. At least move up tot he 212's big brother, the Hyper 612 PWM.

-Suggest a 120/128GB Tier 3 SSD ... Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 120 GB, OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120 GB, Patriot WildFire 120 GB
Samsung 830 SSD 128 GB

Don't bother getting the 2700k just raise the multiplier to 27 with the 2600k.
Go for the Hyper 612, bigger brighter better then evo.
If you are going to be doing lots of video editing then you can justify upping the Ram to 16g?

Personally I'd wait before buying the 7000 series at least until June. (I call it the 6 month rule, sorts out any problems, better drivers and cards usually become cheaper)

612 it is then. I was contemplating on a 69xx card to cut back on funds to spend elsewhere. And I did plan on upgrading more RAM but was going to wait till after I complete the build.

I'm also unsure of the SSD recommended. Just not sure if I'm willing to spend extra funds.

You have $2k cash. You can and should fit in a 128 GB SSD.
