First gaming/video editing rig. Thoughts needed! :D

The build is quite limited to my local shop because it is the only shop that does not sell overpriced parts.

CPU: Intel i5-3570 (3.40 GHz)
MoBo: Asus P8H77-M LE
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 16gb 1600 (12800CL9D-SR2)4x4
GPU: Gainward GTX680 2gb ddr5 256bit
HDD: 1.0TB Seagate Barracuda
Optical Drive: Samsung 22x SH-S223
Case: Cooler Master Elite K350 with Window
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium OEM

Put me at a price of 54,800 Php or 1,370 USD. Dang prices. Posted some builds a couple of times, so I hope this could be final.
