  1. You could drop the i7 for an i5-3570k and save some money. For gaming, you wouldn't notice the difference, and depending on how heavy of a load of editing you are doing, it will do just fine. To save some more cash, you could always get a cheaper case, but that's a really nice case.
  2. I can see some big and easy ways to save some cash.

    1000W PSU is not needed. Downgrade to 650W, its more than enough for the rig as it stands. 750W if you want to go Crossfire/SLI.

    You want the 212 EVO, not the 212+. The EVO has a better baseplate with wider heat-pipes.
