Using mainly for video decoding/internet/photo editing/video editing

Want to overclock sometimes to about 4.7 or 4.8, will leave around 4.5 most of time if possible.

Already have:
1TB WD FAEX HD 64mb 6gig

would like firewire front panel, usb, etc

would like to maybe save money and get a second video card to use one and encode with one if possible.

Any compatibility issues, suggestions.

Asus Motherboard P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 $204.99
16Gig Ram Ripsaws X 1600 $88.99

Corsair Force Series GT CSSD-F90GBGT-BK 2.5" 90GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
$139.99 and a $30 rebate makes it $109.99

This is a 90gb SSD and is big enough for the OS and your main application , the rest can go on the HDD. The read/write speeds of this SSD are much faster then the Crucial. I have the 180gb version and have no problems with anything I do.

ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

I know it's the same price but it is a far better psu then the OCZ.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R

You may not need all 16gb of ram so start out with 8gb and if you need more then add another 8gb set.
The total savings from these changes is $134 and add to that the $71 from the budget ($900-$828.93=$71) and you have enough for a video card which I didn't see listed.
