Need advice on picking computer parts

I need advice on building a computer. I need this computer for (in order of importance) editing HD video, Gaming, Web browsing, School work. I need a capture card that can capture in HD for my Xbox360. As for games on the PC i was thinking BF3, Arma 2, Day Z, Skyrim, Minecraft and any other games (mostly first person shooters) on higher resolutions with a good framerate.

For parts this is what i was thinking,

Motherboard: Asus Maximus v Formula
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131854

GPU: Asus GTX 670
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121637

CPU: Intel i7 3770K
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116501

PSU: Corsair AX 850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015&Tpk=ax%20850

Case: Corsair Obidian 800D (Picked this case because im planning on adding water cooling in the future and its got plenty of room)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139001

RAM DDR3 1866: Corsair Vengeance
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233236


Or should i go with the DDR3 2133 for $12 more for the future when the CPU gets upgraded and can handle it can handle it.

RAM DDR3 2133: Corsair Vengeance

HDD: Samsung Spinpoint f3 (probly gunna get two if its a good drive)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185

SSD:
Is it important? I was thinking as a boot drive and have important programs on it. Need recommendations.

CD/DVD Drive: Sony
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827118031

Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K90 (Chose because it has macros and is mechanical).
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823816002

Mouse: Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Infection
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826201005

Or I like the M.M.O. 7 But is it worth the extra $20 because the K90 has macro keys?

Mouse option 2: Cyborg M.M.O. 7
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826201003

Monitor: Acer 120 Hz, 2ms response, 3D (Maybe in the future I will probably use the 3D option).
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009222


I am in the United States. I would prefer newegg.com, amazon, or any reliable site that has better prices. I am going for a red and black theme besides the keyboard because i couldn't find another that was back-lit and mechanical keyboard with macros.
I am open to any suggestions but i would prefer the parts to match the color scheme. I also need a good capture card preferably HDMI and i will capture xbox 360 with it. I will most likely be adding liquid cooling in the future. I will be adding lights
sometime soon.

  1. what is your budget?

    when i build computers, they are usually black and blue so heres my warning. most red parts cost more than the blue parts (dunno why) and they perform the same task just as well
