Advice on my Video Editing/Gaming PC Build configuration.

I have a build I am designing for a low budget video editing/gaming rig. Below are my selected components to get a build of around £800. Can someone please check over my configuration and let me know if there are any compatibility issues or if there is something else I should be getting as well or instead of an item. Thanks...

Intel Core i7 3770 3.4GHz

Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Motherboard

Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory

Geforce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB GDDR5

Fractal Design Define R4

Corsair CS550M Modular 550W PSU

Samsung SH-224DB 24X Internal DVD Writer

Tenda Wireless-N300 PCI Adapter

Crucial 240GB M500 SSD

Toshiba 2TB Internal Hard Drive


also... Windows 7 or 8?
