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=N82E168...

GPU: Asus GTX 670
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: Intel i7 3770K
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: Corsair AX 850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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=N82E168...

RAM DDR3 1866: Corsair Vengeance
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


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=N82E168...

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=N82E168...

Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K90 (Chose because it has macros and is mechanical).
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mouse: Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Infection
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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=N82E168...

Monitor: Acer 120 Hz, 2ms response, 3D (Maybe in the future I will probably use the 3D option).

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.

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
