Final thoughts\revisions for $3000 gaming PC

Parts: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/obhN

I really wanted a mechanical backlit keyboard, I have a love of great sounding music but do not wish to sacrifice lots of graphics power for a minuscule difference. I did not include the O.S. (if anyone has a way to get win 7 for free let me know).

Uses form most to least important: Gaming, Music, Photoshop

Give me your thoughts on if I could improve for similar money amounts and all that!!
