January 25, 2013 2:16:21 AM could save $200 easily if you changed cases but I understand you like this one.

Don't get that PSU. Stick with Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.

For video editing nvidia cards are better, for gaming the 7970 is better.
So either a 670 gtx or that one, depending on the priorities.
The rest seems fine, though, if you're not planning to crossfire/sli the cards, get a lower psu
