Didnt know where to ask this..
This is my first time posting on this site but I have been looking through it alot latley.
Anyways, Im building a new gaming/video editing computer. I just want you guys to tell me if its a good build.

Here it is:

Definitely change the case and PSU - most anything Raidmax makes is complete garbage - as are Cooler Master PSUs.

I'd also switch out the RAM with a better vendor - you could also drop the 2600 to the 2500K and upgrade your GPU to a 7870.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Corsair Carbide 400R
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - Corsair TX650 V2
GPU: http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/?cid=1... - Sapphire Radeon HD 7870
