This is my first build, and I will be using it mainly for video editing, & secondary, playing world of warcraft, and probably a little borderlands 2 (when it drops) all advice appreciated, don't really have a budget, just buying piece by piece, as I get the money! (plan on getting everything else by next week)

BTW if anyone can think of a better CPUxMOBO Combo please let me know!

Rosewill isn't bad but there are better PSU manufacturers out there.

An i7 will give you better video editing performance but the 3570k should cut it, especially if overclocked.

You might want more than 8GB ram if doing video editing.
