Put a thread up a while back and now I actually have the money to buy the parts. (Going to be used for gaming, editing videos in AE, Photoshop, Cinema4D, and other editing programs) Any last minute changes before I start ordering? Budget - $1600

Much appreciated. :D

P.S. I am a very big multitasker.

8gb of ram is more than enough for gaming, picked a better ssd and larger one from the savings on ram. You can drop that sound card if you want to cope up with budget. But its your preference.

True and I can always get more RAM in the future if needed.
I was thinking about dropping the sound card too, but I see reviews all the time on mobos sound cards going bad.
I guess I'll drop it though and order later if needed.

I would stay with the previous psu, the seasonic m12II.. modular, cheaper and high tiered from this list http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx.

the 520w of m12II is fine but its price difference from 620w is very little, go with 620w. If you plan to add another gpu later on, get a 750w psu.
