Cool Buying a PC, does these parts work together?

Hey everyone

Im setting up a new PC, i want the PC to be working great with editing and gaming the latest games at fairly high performance/graphics. When i edit i usually edit with Adobe Premiere and After effects, and there is alot of multitasking going on.

I dont want the Parts to be too expensive but i want it to be good and upgrade friendly, so i looked at newegg.com for some parts and i found these.

Im probably upgrading to 2x graphics card soon also to 32 ram instead of 16gig.


Processor: Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I72600K

Motherboard: Newegg.com - ASUS P8Z77-V LX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Videocard: Newegg.com - ASUS HD7770-DC-1GD5-V2 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Power: Newegg.com - CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Case: Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced RC-932-KKN5-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0, Black Interior and Four Fans-1x 230mm front RED LED fan, 1x 140mm rear fan, 1x 230mm top fan, and 1x 230mm side fan

RAM: Newegg.com - CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10

Startup Harddrive: Newegg.com - Corsair Accelerator Series CSSD-C60GB 2.5" 60GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Harddrive: Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Is these parts good enough for me?
Do all the parts work good together?

What kind of editing exactly? This answer will determine whether or not I say you should go ahead with that 32GB Upgrade or stick with the 16GB. For gaming, 8GB is enough, but that 7770 wont really do you much justice depending on what games you play.

I asked what kind of editing you will be doing so I can base my judgement on the programs being used.
I'd suggest a card more like this.

Oh i am sorry for the misunderstanding there. I am editing with Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects, and that needs alot of power if u know what i mean. I wanna be able to multitask beetween the programs without closing them! :P

I wouldn't say you need 32GB of RAM for that. Maybe 24. I'm not going to lie though, I don't exactly use those programs enough to know how much multiple instances of high res images will take up so I'll let somebody else confirm.
