Default New Build for photo editing

Hi all, I do a lot of photo editing, some video recoding and editing and run a lot of other stuff like netcam monitor software and sometimes all at the same time. And play games with great graphics.

My last build was:
ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe
P4/3.4GHZ Intel
Mushkin 1GB '222 Special' PC3200
2 WD Raptor 74 GB in Raid 0 on the Intel ICH5
ASUS Radeon 9800 xt
Creative Audigy2 ZS
Antec Truepower 550 Watt ATX
MNTR Mitsubish/22 DP2070SB_BK CRT
in a Case Antec/Plusview 1000AMG LE RET

That was 5 year ago. I'm giving that to my kids (little hackers) ages 6 & 10 and I want to build something high end that I can kick around real hard for the next 4 years and have room to add useless cards and junk to as I see fit.

I'm using my Mitsubishi 22" crt a my primary monitor and a Samsung 2333SW 23-Inch Full HD Widescreen LCD secondary so they'll move to the new PC.

This is what I am thinking about, what do you all think?

My new Rig 11-24-09


CPU - Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz LGA 1366. At Newegg for - $278.99

Motherboard - ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 LGA 1366. At Newegg for - $289.99

RAM - OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800). At Newegg for - $158.99

Video Card - Radeon HD 5970. At Newegg for - $629.99

PSU - Antec TruePower Quattro TPQ-1000 1000W Continuous Power ATX12V. At Newegg for - $169.99

Hard Drive - Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2M160G2R5. At Newegg for - $599.99

OS - Windows 7 Ultimate. At Newegg for $291.99 or at MS for $219.99


Total = $2416.93


Thanks
Marc

Everything seems good. The only thing I would consider change is the hard drive. I would buy this one for the OS:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-016-_-Product
and buy this one for the files:
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Don't forget to buy the 64 bits OS.

Haven't noticed the 1000W PSU
Regarding the HDD, in my opinion the raptor doesn't worth the extra money comparing to a WD Black, just my two cents :P

Actually I would keep one of the raptors of your old rig to put the OS and buy a bigger HDD for files.
