I'm about to order the parts to my computer. I'll be going with:

CPU - i5 2400 (I'm not overclocking)
GPU - Sapphire HD 6870
SSD - Crucial M4 128GB
Case - Rosewill Challenger
PSU - Corsair CX600
RAM - G.Skill Value Series 8GB
Mobo - P8Z68-V LX

How does that look for a video editing and gaming PC?

looks good - here's what i'd recommend to change..

- GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0: $140

or this one:
- GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0: $150

they're both GEN3 boards, and also have the front USB3.0 connector (unlike the P8Z68-V LX)

- Antec Three Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded 2 x USB 3.0: $70

better build quality than Rosewill

PSU - your choice is good, but you could also no prob go down to 550w if you wanted.. and this one is modular too:
- Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular: $65

I would keep everything you have. Wouldnt change a thing.
