Well, you want him to OC yet you have a 3770 non K version and an H77 board that is non OCable.
You also don't need 750w for this build either. For even a 660ti SLI setup a 650w TX would suffice plenty.
The Storm has problems with actually putting decent cooling solutions in there. The best you might be able to get is an H80i due to how they have the center situated. I suggest getting a harness instead so he can use any case. I use this very one with my current rig which is pretty hefty (I'd say between 40 and 50lbs).

Don't ever buy an Acer monitor or laptop. Ridiculously low quality and reliability. You can literally Google the horror stories of them going out right after warranty. Stick with Asus, Samsung, and Dell.
This is the rig I setup.

I went with the 200r because it's a solid light case so he can move it around, I know with the harness it brings the rig to 1250 but if this is being purchased in the summer time then prices will have changed by then.
I went with the 3570k because it's more than plenty for any gaming or light learning editing needs. Also great with OCing. Later on when it comes to that you can get him a nice cooler. He will benefit more with the GPU being more powerful than having a good cooler to OC. He can learn with somebody watching over him how to OC and what to look for with the stock cooler.
I added the G.SKill RAM because the RAM that comes with the board is a promotion and wont be there for purchase.
660ti for obvious reasons, great card.
TX650 due to the fact that you can even run SLI 660ti with it just fine, and better quality than the CX.
Seagate HDD because it's cheaper with relatively the same performance.
Asus LCD because it's a nice size and 1080p for a cheap price.
Windows 7 because there is no point in learning 8.
One thing I'm wondering is if he will need a keyboard and mouse. The rig will have to be edited but I suggest having another rig be made a week or two before purchase to get the best deals and best prices. Everything will change after June.
