Hey Everyone. I"m building my first gaming pc, and have a couple questions. First the components I've chosen are these... ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 MoBo AZZA Dynamo 850 850W psu CORSAIR XMS3 16GB (4x4gb) mem i7-2600K cpu ZALMAN CNPS11X Extreme cpu cooler
question 1... Are these components compatable? And will they work well together? question 2... What would be a good choice for graphics?

Looks good. A 7970 would be a great card for you, and if that's too much, the 7950 or 6950 will be great. If you aren't gonna get at least a 6950, then just go with an i5-2500k.
Yes they are compatible, what games are you going to be playing? And how much money are you willing to spend? Most builds with similar specs have either a gtx 560ti or a radeon 6950 in them.
but will be using for multi tasking and video editing as well.
7970 would be overkill then unless you plan on purchasing a bigger variety of games later. The 6950 would be a great card. Your CPU is about as good as it gets for multitasking, so that isn't an issue one bit.
