More about good build
  1. 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.
  2. 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
