Some editing doesn't require an i7. Only if you're doing professional editing does it require one. Your motherboard is overpriced. The one I linked is much cheaper and just as good.

Oh ok and do you think that games in the future will be using the i7's full power cause I really dont want to be regreting not just getting a i7 2 or 3 years down the line

Nope, it won't be for close to a decade.

No. Don't make me give a detailed explanation as to why lol. I'll just direct you to a thread my friend explained it to me in.

Bout mid way down in the thread Raiddin gets into it.

Yes, everything is fine except for the 8GB too much RAM and the unnecessary i7.

Powerful video card, motherboard has good reviews, very high quality case and power supply, you could probably do better on the hard drive, but I doubt you'd notice. Traditional hard drives, much like optical drives have pretty much reached their peak in performance, (since there is inherent mechanical limitations as to how fast they can spin)

Even so, this one should "technically" be faster, it has more cache and its SATA III as opposed to SATA II like the Samsung.

SATA 1.5GB/s is barely saturated, so 6GB/s won't be.

Probably not, RPM speed doesnt do much either. I have a SATA III WD Caviar Blue 7200 RPM as my main drive, and a Seagate Barracuda Green SATA II 5900RPM as my secondary. I put Windows7 on both, I can't tell a difference between them. Although, the higher cache of the one I linked like I said, technically should do something, but I doubt it would be noticeable.
