I am here with some more questions, regarding the rest of the parts i should buy.
I mostly use my pc for Gaming and Video Editing.

I already own:

Cpu: i7-2700k (want to overclock to 4.5Ghz)
Gpu: Asus GTX 670
Case: CoolerMaster Storm Trooper
Psu: Corsair GS700 700w

I am Wondering About:

Mobo: edited: (msi mpower z77)
Ssd: edited: (samsung 830 128gb)
Hdd: western digital 1tb black
Cooler: H100i
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16GB Black
Ops: windows 7

Please Help me try and make this cheaper and or better.

Get the msi z77 mpower, don't get the z77 sabertooth the thermal armor just gets more heat instead of decreasing it, also it's overpriced, the mpower is way better.
See if you still can find a samsung 830 ssd with 128/256 gb.
Also drop the cooler, get the noctua nh-d14 or phanteks PH-TC14PE.
You can same some $ by going with a seagate 1TB or wd blue 1TB

i am going with western digital because of a hard drive failure with the seagate one i had. i would like to use a water cooler for looks, i know its stupid, but it matters to me. and i will go with the samsung 830. Also i will go with msi, thank you.

another question i have is, should i try and return the gs 700w and try and get a tx750w? because i am thinking in a yeas time to get another 670 for sli on the three screens i will have? or should i keep it because i got it for 70 dollars?

It's a good psu, it has juice for two 670 gtx(cutting close, but it can deliver full power @ good temp), if you can trade or swap, get a modular one with 750w, like the xfx xxx edition, corsair hx, seasonic x series.
