CPU: Intel i7 3770k
GPU: Asus HD 7870 2GB GDDR5
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth Z77
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 16GB (4x4GB)
SSD: OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SATA III
HDD: WD Caviar Green 1TB 7200RPM SATA III
Power Supply: Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1000W
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H80 CPU Cooler
RAM Cooler: Corsair Dominator Airflow Memory Fan
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 Special Edition

Is that a good build for video and photo editing on Adobe Premiere Elements and Photoshop CS6, gaming (MW3 and TF2), and other CPU and GPU intensive tasks?

looks good to me, I'd replace the H80 for a big air cooler (Nocua DH perhaps), and you don't need a 1000W PSU at all. a 500-600W Is all you need for your build

I'll suggest the SeaSonic S12 II 520W model.

Someone told me that more power equals better performance which is why I chose 1000w. Is that not true?
And isnt water cooling better than air cooling?

that guy must be trolling. you should buy the right amount of wattage not the most watts you can afford

water is better than air but its only really good when you do custom loops.
