First Time Build

So I'm building a new computer for myself, and need some help based on my budget (1100$ Grand Total).

Main Uses: Video Editing, Gaming, Photoshop, 3D Modeling.

Sub Total was about 1,000$ thanks to combos, add sales tax and shipping should come out to a little less than 1100.

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817342033 (800 Watt Silver 80 Plus, $89.99)

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116501 (i7 3770k, $319.99)

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293 (Asrock z77 extreme4, $119.99)

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147175 (Rosewill ARMOR-EVO, $89.99)

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127696 (MSI PE n660 ti, $309.99)

Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233281 (Corsair Vengeance 16gb 2x8, 109.99)

Combos used are motherboard+case, and GPU+memory.

I don't need a dvd drive or a hdd. Also, the case isn't brutally necesary, seeing as I have an unused Antec 300. I just like the thought of a new case. :D

If you have a completely different build in mind for my budget and uses, feel free to recommend seeing as I am completely fine with starting from scratch. This will be my first build, however I do have some knowledgeable people around me that can help put everything together.

Thank you!

    You probably only need a 550 watt power supply, and a different case to save some money.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I'll have to think about that, the main reason I chose the 800 Watt is for if in the future I ever decide to go sli. As for the case, it ends up being only an extra $10 thanks to combo deals, so I want to stick with the rosewill seeing as it has amazing airflow, which is essential for where I live.

    You only need about 700w for sli. 7870's crossfire use 650w and AMD cards are more power hungry then nVidia
