Just before i make it final, i wanted to check one more time with you guys if you think this is a good build for its value.

if you are just gaming

if you are doing a fair bit of video editing along with gaming

the CPU cooler i chose would most likely be better than your cooler if it is a heatsink.

the pc isnt purely for gaming, ill use photoshop and similar programs, as well as 3D rendering programs. so the second link is more relevant. a couple of questions: why that motherboard over the one i chose? and the same question with the RAM and SDD. by the way I need the 3TB as a back up drive. whyd you scale down the gpu to a 670? is the 680 abit excessive? and if i were to go 670 is it better to get the PSU you selected or the Corsair HX750w?

and yes the cpu cooler you selected is better the one im using is the smaller model the noctua nh-u12p se2
