Hey guys,
Rate it, comment on it, review it, critique it, recommend stuff for this build :p  It will be mainly used for intense gaming, music production, video editing, and multimedia (music and video storage).

So far this build seems to come out to 12500-1300 dollars, but my budget would be 1400-1500(max), so please tell me of any sweet upgrades for an extra 100-200 :) 
Also i will be buying most parts in EUROS, online and i am from FRANCE so prices all seem to be a bit cheaper (units of money), so my budget is actually 1400-1500 EUROS (do not convert to dolars since i'm buying from over here in EUROS...)

either get a gigabyte windforce gtx670 or get the msi power edition gtx670. whichever one is cheaper. if the msi is only 10 euros more than the gigabyte, get it

get the ud5h. or you can see if the asus z77-v pro is around the same price. both are good options

get a better power supply like a xfx xxx 750w (grey fan) or a hx750 from corsair

if the ocz vertex 4 isnt that much more expensive, get that instead

get a mid tower. everything fits. id suggest the fractal define R4 if its avaliable

Only thing I would add, if you can get it at a sensible price, the Corsair Carbide 500R would be an ideal case, for build. Not as quiet, perhaps, as the R4, but better vent for an overclocked system, with SLi.

That original build looks really good. Here's my suggestions:

1. Use the HAF XM or the aforementioned Fractal Design R4 for your case and save some money there.

2. Get this for your PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

3. Get the Gigabyte UD4 for your motherboard for Thunderbolt support.

Then it will be awesome.
