Review an adobe CS build for a newbie

Hello, this is my first time doing a custom build, and I'm trying to get maximum bang for buck (aren't we all). Main use will be Photoshop CS5.5 with huge files (2gb saved). I'd like to be able to do some video editing in future, (i have master collection).

So far I have:

I7 3770K
ASRock Z77 Extreme6/TB4 mobo
3x seagate barracuda 7200rpm 3tb (to use in raid setup)
sandisk extreme SSD 256gb (for os and apps)
ram 16gb, (2x8)... haven't picked exact one yet

I'm not sure what GPU to get, want some performance, but not to break the bank... any thoughts?
Any advice on processor coolers would be appreciated... I will probably OC at some point, but not immediately. Need something easy to install. :)

Could use some advice on what case... size is not an issue, but I will be adding more drives later.

Any other thoughts or incompatibilities?

  1. Im thinking of either:
    ASUS HD7770-2GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
    EVGA 02G-P4-3651-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

    they're the same price...
