I'm building my first computer for gaming and video editing. I'm just wondering if everything looks compatible, I checked but it doesn't hurt for a second look over.

EVGA 04G-P4-2673-KR GeForce GTX 670 Superclocked:

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge:

MSI Z77A-G45 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI:

Western Digital WD AV-GP WD10EURX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5":

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Gold Series RSA00-80GAD3-US 1000W:

LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA:

COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced RC-932-KKN5-GP :

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) :

Any advice and help is much appreciated!

Change the psu,otherwise it's solid.
Look at seasonic or corsair.

Also look at low profile ram; it won't collide with large heatsinks.

Other suggestion is maybe go to a 3570k and get an SSD. There shouldn't be too large a performance drop between them for video editing, and practically none for gaming.

You could easily make do with a 500W PSU. On such an expensive system you don't want a green HDD, you want a SSD + normal HDD. I wonder if you really need the i7 either; on the other you didn't opt for 16 GB RAM.
