Lol I don't think this category is called high Performance PC SYSTEMS FOR nothing :P. Don't think its JUST for gaming it's going to be used for video editing aswell.

Well wouldn't it be okay just for liability reasons? JUST incase the system actually requries more then I thought...

doesnt matter that psu is still an overkill you can get an antec true power trio that will run that rig just fine

and video editing wont cause you to use mroe power so i dontk know what you are getting at there

Well for starters I'd get the armor over the Kandalf just because it looks better and its a little cheaper, they're more or less the same though. If you have the money I would go with a Asus Striker 680i motherboard over the Abit or if you want to save money go with the Evga 680i. I would also go with an Evga 8800gtx because of the lifetime warrenty and there step up program. If your going to spend big money on everything else you might as well get fast ram. Anything OCZ or Corsair over DDR 900 should do. For hard rives, raptors are fast but expensive. I'd get two 74 gig raptors in raid and then have a couple 320gigs for storage. sound card looks good and the PSU is overkill but it will do fine. I'd go with a PC power and cooling silencer for the PSU if I were you though. For some hardcore cooling try,
