Hi guys! I'm puikim. I'm a student and this is my first time building a new rig. Main purpose of this PC is for gaming and a little video editing. I would like to ask for a community feedback on my dream build. Also, please do comment/suggest better options.

Casing: Aerocool Xpredator Black Edition(Full Tower)
PSU: Corsair AX750
Motherboard: Asus Maximus V Formula or Asus Maximus V Extreme (please help me decide on this, because I have read from somewhere that the Formula is not worth it)
Processor: i7-3770k
RAM: G.Skill or Corsair (please suggest some good RAMs to go with my build.. preferably 2X4GB ones)
SSD: Crucial M4 128GB
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
GPU: GTX660Ti or GTX670 (also please recommend a good brand)
Cooling System: Corsair H100
ODD: Please suggest a good optical drive that can read and write BR/DVD/CD.

Are most of the components compatible? And will H100 be enough if I would like to OC my Proc to around 4.0GHz? Advance thank you for those who are willing to help.

I'm planning to edit some videos to create blu-ray. Also, I would like to stick nVidia GPU. I would prefer a full tower case, so I don't have to buy new ones everytime I would like to upgrade.
