I am building a new machine for a power hungry user.
Will do video editing, will be running virtual os, wants a ton of ram.
does not game. He is a power users, but not much of a gamer.

He just told me he is interested in some games.

Will run 2 25" monitors

The power
Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W

The Mobo
GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP4 TH LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel

The Ram - 32 gb
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

I am not sure about the graphics card.
Can we go with something like
ZOTAC ZT-60201-10L GeForce GT 640 2GB 128-bit DDR3

or do we need to spend more money here... he does not game.
he does a lot of video editing and dual monitors. I guess he might start to game.

Will get some solid state hard drive and a 1tb hard drive for data
Will also use an antec 750w power supply. Dont really need input on those.
I am jsut a year or so behind on research for cpu's and mobo's
