    Looks pretty good! Everything should work. I would go for the 3570k and overclock it if you can. If you do that, you might want a 600w PSU, and better cooling. Other than that, you are all set!
  2. You need more harddrives for efficient video processing. Its suggested 3 minimum and 4 optimal.
    3 drives: OS/Programs/Source, Scratch, Destination
    4 drives: OS, Source & programs, scratch, destination

    Up to 32gb ram.

    Also an AMD GPU if you plan on using GPU processing as Abode has dropped cuda support with CS6 in favor of opengl and amd's just kick arse in that department. Which also places more emphasis on making your hdd systems as fast as possible.
    I suggest you read up on whats optimal for drives in your favorite editing forums.

    I just cant find any reviews on that PSU, its always better off with a good review. Also if you plan to overclock or upgrade you got more power!
