Hello friends! I've recently put together a list of components for a new PC. Im going to use it for gaming and video editing and I am interested to know if I chose well and if it's worth waiting some more and see if the prices drop. The budget is around £1700 and it should buy the following:

1. motherboard - ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe
2. graphics - ATI Radeon 7970
3. cpu - Intel CPU Core i7 3770K
4. ssd - Samsung 840 Pro 128 gb (system)
5. hdd - Seagate Barracuda 3TB (storage)
7. power supply unit - OCZ ZT 650w
8. bd rom - LiteOn iHBS312
9. ram - 8 gb Corsair DDR3 XMS3 2 GHz
10. keyboard - Logitech g710+
11. mouse - Logitech g9x
12. headphones - Logitech g35
13. speakers - Logitech LS21
14. case - Cooler Master Elite 430 mid ATX

im waiting for opinions/constructive critics

allright, thanks for the input! ill look to change to a lower wattage since i dont need to crossfire. on the other hand, would you think that the gtx 680 will get cheaper within the next 3 months? cause i d like to go for it. what do you think?

I'd forget the GTX 680, it isn't very good value. Just stick with the HD 7970 and possibly overclock it a bit.
