if you are not video editing and just gaming or internet browsing ect. get a i5 instead. if you are going to overclock you will want a cpu cooler other than the intel stock; like a coolermaster 212+ or EVO and a 750 watt PSU is unnecessary, a 600-650 watt PSU will cover that.
Intel Core i5 2500K CPU - $225.00
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO $39.00 inc. GST
Corsair TX-650 V2 Power Supply $115.00

then take the difference and get:
MSI Radeon HD7950 $419.00

I agree with looniam, a 270k seems overkill. A SSD may be another option with the remaining cash. Something like the Crucial m4 128GB

ok. then you might want to consider getting a scratch disk so your rendering doesn't bottleneck. but overall it looks. good.

Unless you're doing video editing all the time, honestly the 2700K may still even be overkill, but if you have the budget for it, go for it.

ASUS P8Z68-V-PRO-GEN3 - $189.00 http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/43040-p8z68-v-pro-g...

Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9W 8GB Kit (2x4GB) 1600Mhz DDR3 - $75.00 http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/41855-cml8gx3m2a160...

The CM Hyper 212+ or EVO both are a good buy for a future overclock.
