Default Is this set up good?

Hello, i have ordered my computer from ibuypower. Before I ordered it, i went on to multiple forum sites to help me on what i would need. I will be gaming, definately watching and burning blu-ray discs, photoshop, after effects, and multiple 3D programs. My build is as followed:
Case: NZXT Alpha Gaming Case - Black
Intel Core i7 2700K Quad Core Processor @3.5 GHz
AMD Radeon HD 7850 - 2GB - Single Card
16GB DDR3-1600 RAM, [8GB x 2] Corsair
Asus P8Z68-V LX Mobo
850 Watt Corsair CMPSU-850TXV2
Liquid CPU Cooling [SOCKET-1155] + Dual ARC Fans
LG Blu-Ray Writer
Windows 7 Professional
+ Other extra stuff that doesn't effect performance

Is this build good for what I do? I also watch a lot of HD Youtube videos, so I am hoping that this build is good enough for what I am wanting to do.

Drop to the 2600K and save yourself a few bucks. The only difference between the 2600K and the 2700K is that the latter has a higher stock clock, and it's only higher by 100MHz.

Edit: Just noticed, did you already buy it?

Well, i can still change it if i had to. I asked many people on many forum sites, so this is not some random guess at a build. i asked many people about it.

I would definitely go with the 2600k if you still can, it's not worth the extra money for 0.1 GHZ.
