Need advice on $2000 - $2500 video edit rig please

I need your help and advice please. I'm building a new rig for the first time so am a total newbie. Here's what is going into my rig, but I would like to have it all wired up with Alchemy braided red cables for some style, and don't know which ones to buy. Also, general advice/thoughts on if my video card is a good choice and balanced with the rest of my choices so far, or any other things that seem whack.

It will be primarily for surfing/email/video editing of home video/video capture in HD from PVR and old SVHS tapes, etc. Not much if any gaming, though with a rig with decent speed/power, I may get into a game here or there.

I don't need a mouse/keyboard/monitor at the moment.

I prefer to source everything from www.ncix.com in Canada, since I'm in Vancouver BC.

Here's what I'm just a day or two away from pulling the trigger on:

Bitfenix Colossus Venom case
One additional Bitfenix Spectre Pro 140mm blue LED fan for back of case
One Alchemy Connect 30cm blue LED strip
Intel core i7 3770k
Corsair Hydro H100 Extreme CPU cooler
Asus P8Z77 V Deluxe mobo
MSI GeForce GTX560Ti Hawk GPU
OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SSD Sata 3
Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200rpm HDD
XFX 1000W Pro Black Ltd full modular PSU
Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM 10-10-10-27. 32GB total RAM
Asus BW12Blu-ray / DVD writer
Hauppauge Colossus PCI-Evideo capture card
Syba SD PEX FWB Firewire Controller card
Silverstone FP37B USB3.0 internal card reader
Bitfenix Window side panel

I heard this may do, but please add/subtract for what will be visible/showing through the side window for some stylin' wiring:

Alchemy 24 pin male to female ATX power extension cable 30cm. Qty 1
Alchemy 8 pin male to female intel eps power extension cable 45cm. Qty 1
Alchemy 4 pin male molex to 4 pin female power extension cable 45cm. Qty 1
Alchemy 6 pin male to female video card power extension cable 45cm. Qty 2
Alchemy 4 pin male molex to SATA power extension cable 45cm. Qty 3
NGear SATA serial ATA hard drive data cable 45cm 7 pin. Qty 3. (would much prefer Bitfenix, but these were suggested by the builder and it seems Bitfenix only makes 30cm ones-----------thoughts?)

Many thanks in advance for your advice/ help

I'm going for red braided cables and blue LED fans by the way. Any way to control lighting/dimming if I also add a Bitfenix Alchemy LED 30cm strip to the inside of the case?

here is a good build. you wont need 1000w since you can never do 3-way SLI. if you really need the lights and stuff, go ahead but it really doesnt add anything but bling and cost to your build
