$1500 Photo/Video Editing Computer

Hello! I decided I wanted to build my very first computer. I have created a build and I would like some help on seeing if all the parts were compatible. Here is the link to the list of products I have chosen. If anyone can suggest ways to put this under $1500 that would be very helpful.


Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP
Budget Range: $1500
System Usage: Photo/Video Editing
Parts Not Required:
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.ca If there are any other places that are better than Newegg that would be fine too.
Country: Canada
Parts Preferences: Intel Processors, NVIDIA Graphic Cards
Overclocking: Maybe
SLI or Crossfire: Not really
Monitor Resolution: 2560 x 1440 + 1920x1080
Additional Comments: If anyone can help suggest a good 27" monitor that is glossy with a resolution of 2560x1440 that would be helpful.

Thanks : )

    I can't tell from the picture how glossy the black is but this monitor has the 2560x1440 resolution and the monitor also has the pivot feature so that you can rotate the monitor to a upright position and you don't have to keep it in the horizontal position all the time especially if you wanted to have the screen in portrait mode you can pivot the monitor to have the whole screen being used instead of just part of it.
  2. Thanks for your help. I have Ended up with this.
    The SSD isn't currently available in Canada so that will be my first upgrade when it releases.
