Gaming Rig $1300

Hello Toms!

I'm looking to build a new gaming rig next week. Upgrading from my Athlon II 4200 that I have right now. My budget is $1300, I have a good knowledge of pcs. So I kind of know what I'm talking about.
Anyways, I game heavily. I also need something that will encode movies fast. I burn lots f movies and right now it takes 2 hr 45min to encode one vid. I'm looking for faster. Also burns take 15 mins. So yeah here it is.

i5-3570k - $230 @Newegg

ASRock Extreme4 Z77- $120 @Newegg

G.Skill ARES 8GB (Blue color) - $50 @Newegg

EVGA GTX 670 FTW- $420 @Newegg

WD caviar black 1TB- $120 @Newegg

NZXT Phantom- $130 @Newegg

Want a very high quality psu. If possible fully modular.

Any DVD burner

.

What would you guys change. Mabye the HDD more space for less, if there I'd. Like the Samsung F4 2TB but it's 5400RPM is it too slow?

Thanks TH!

  1. I run a Cooler Master Silent Pro 750w which does more then i need, and its fully modular except for the Motherboard connections
  2. i wouldnt get cooler master just yet. stick with solid brands like seasonic, corsair, xfx, pc and power cooling, and some antec units

    this is what i would get

    make sure that you use the onboard GPU on the i5 3570k to encode videos as it is much faster than the gtx670
