Default proposed video editing build

I've been researching for about a month, and I'm just about ready to buy. I wanted to make sure the items I've selected are compatible and suitable for the build. I'm making a portable desktop so that I can more easily take it to sets and whatnot (I'm a film maker). I'll be canabalizing the case as well as my current one and building my own, so I'm not worried about how crappy the case is or isn't. I already have an optical disk and monitor. I will be using the computer for video editing with premiere and after effects and with the prospect of hd editing and printing in the future when it is more in my fiscal range. I wanted plenty of room to upgrade. I also want to play games on it, but I don't need max settings. Anyway, my buget is US $1150, so not a lot of wiggle room. Let me know if a few more dollars would do me some good because I might be able to switch some funds around and increase the buget. With out further adue:

CPU and MB: i7 920 and ASUS p6t deluxe v2 US$555

subtotal (includind S/H): about US$1170
minus MIR: $US80

TOTAL: US$1090 (give or take a few bucks)

I'm planning on purchasing tomorrow, so, as always, a swift responce is appreciated. If you like the build let me know if I should upgrade to fedex shipping with the remaining buget or look at extending warranties or something. Thanks a bunch.

I'm going with onboard sound for now. Someday I might upgrade when I can afford decent software. I read somewhere that I might need triple channel RAM. So I switched to 3gb of crucial memory.
Crucial PC8500 1066MHz 3GB DDR3 Triple Channel Desktop Memory Kit - 3072MB (3 x 1024MB), 240 Pin at TigerDirect.com
Its $50, so including the rebate on the OCZ it's the same price. It's a gig less which is a shame, so can anyone confirm this?

That's pretty slow RAM, you'd be much better off with 1333MHz or even 1600MHz.

Well, I bought it. Thanks. I went with the 1333mhz on newegg for like $47 or something. I'm really nervous now that something is going to go wrong and ruin my investment. I guess everyone goes through that, but I'd like to thank everyone on the forum for helping me. I learned a lot. Now I guess I just need a good tutorial. I think I saw one on Tom's Hardware that looked nice. And if anyone knows of any case modding or wieght reduction tutorials, I could use those too. Thanks again.

Everything will be fine. If not Newegg has a good return policy.
