Gaming/Video Editing/Coding@Database work

Hello all..

I'm building a new PC with around a 2500 dollar budget. Primary uses will be video editing, gaming, and when I get the joy of working form home.. a bit of coding/database work.

I have the following as a general idea for a system:

Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Power Supply: CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K
CPU Fan; Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Motherboard: GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML16GX3M4X1600C7
Video Card: 2x EVGA 02G-P4-2670-KR GeForce GTX 670
Hard Drive (bootable): Plextor M3 Pro Series PX-128M3P 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC 7mm Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I have 3 2TB drives from my old system for data storage that I'll be bring over as well as a blue ray player/burner.

  1. where do you live. it will help in deciding the parts

    assuming you live in the US, heres what i would get. the plextor is great but the price diference just isnt worth it for a little boost in speed. a single 670 is capable of maxing out games at 1080p with 60+fps so i dont see the use for 2 right now. the motherboard is also overkill
  2. I do live in the U.S., sorry for not including that. The main reason for the motherboard choice was the onboard sound being the creative chip set. I have flip flopped over the second video card quite a bit.. mainly included for the decent amount of video editing work i do and some photoshop work.

    you can always add your own sound card. a nice one is the asus dx 7.1 surround sound card. if you think that spending 80 bucks on a sound card is too much, id get a asus ds 7.1. there isnt too much difference between the two. onboard audio from the z77x-ud5h is enough to satisfy most users. the ud5h does use a slightly better than usual sound system
