  1. Here, try this...

    If you think you'll need more RAM, just grab another 16gb kit of that stuff I recommended. It's blazing fast, great for rendering and video editing work.

    I didn't go with the gtx 680s because I didn't feel the price justified the small performance gains...same thing with the 3930k vs 3960x.

    The PSU is high quality and plenty of power for what you'll need.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I'll try to answer to the best of my ability.
