Hi guys, I'd like your opinion on this new build. I already bought essentially everything but many things remain unboxed so could be changed. I am pretty happy though. Mostly for video editing and eventual games.

I7 8320 sandy bridge-e (with coolermaster hyper 212 evo)
asus p9x79 pro
16 gb (4x4) gskill ripjaw z 1600
evga gtx570 superclocked
ante nine hundred two v3
psu: silencer 760w
3 data hard drives 1 tb each (this may change in the future.. for the moment one is boot and the other 2 are put in RAID)
monitor dell led 24''

I think I'm not forgetting anything important :)

great build but i would suggest the following changes-
go with 78050 or 7870.570 is outdated.
instead of 3 HDDs,go with a single 2tb drive with a ssd.for example-samsung f4 2tb for storage and crucial m4 128gb ssd for high priority aps and os.
hd 7850-
f4 2tb-
m4 128gb-

Hi, thanks for the reply!

Actually the reason for the gtx is that I will be among other things using adobe premiere, and would want to take advantage of mercury.

I do plan to update my graphics card in 1 or 2 years definitely.

You are right about the hard drives, I'll think about it!

Yeah, for video editing CUDA cores are very useful. Great build!

Finally went for the m4 :) 
I thought about getting a cheaper drive. There is an OCZ Agility 3 for $100, which is $45 difference.. but I guess it's not worth it, and the drive is not the part where one wants to be cheap I suppose.
