Please help me finish my build for Video Editing/Gaming Rig

Hey guys, just wanted to get your opinion on my planned build for a new rig since my laptop died and now thinking of building my own PC after years using a laptop and kinda unsure if I'm picking the right parts for my intended use. Will be using it primarily for video editing with apps like Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop and Sony Vegas and will be playing some DOTA 2 on my free time.

For now here is my current parts list. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Type Item Price
CPU Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor $319.99 @ Amazon
CPU Cooler Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler $89.99 @ Newegg
Motherboard Asus Z97-A ATX LGA1150 Motherboard $143.99 @ Amazon
Memory Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $144.99 @ Amazon
Case Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case $119.98 @ OutletPC
Total
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available $818.94

Didn't put any peripherals since I already have them. I am also building this with thoughts of doing upgrades later on when I get more money for it. Just not quite sure with what PSUand GPU to use, planning to do a dual monitor in the future. Will also add some SSD drives later on and additional memory to reach the maximum of 32GB capacity of the motherboard.

Any way I can improve this build? What parts do I need to replace? Thanks!
